Officers from across the Public Service are attending a workshop on commercial drone policies this week as part of a UK Government funded Darwin Plus Project titled, “Sustainable Sargassum Management”.

The Government of Virgin Islands through the Ministry of Natural Resources and Labour has been engaged since 2021 in the project led by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI). The project is also underway in Anguilla and Montserrat.

Dr. Kimberly Baldwin of Marine Spatial Information Solutions is leading the workshop and stated that she was grateful for the opportunity to build capacity in the Territory.

Dr. Baldwin said, “This is a one week course in which I am teaching the various trainees not only to fly drones, but to operate on a commercial and professional level which involves a lot more safety procedures and operations.”
