This conference is an unparalleled opportunity for experts, policymakers, scientists, and stakeholders to engage in meaningful discussions on coastal management challenges and opportunities in our region. The goal is to foster resilience, enhance climate change adaptation, and promote economic sustainability for our coastal communities.

The conference sessions will focus on four major themes, each featuring comprehensive sessions, panel discussions, and lightning talks:

  3. Coastal Governance
  4. The Blue Economy

They encourage the submission of lightning talks (5 minutes) and poster presentations and are accepting proposals until the week before the conference. This is a fantastic chance to share you research, insights, and innovative solutions with a diverse audience. The deadline is approaching, so don’t miss out!

They can still offer the early bird rate, if you mention the HIT RESET program so make sure to register as soon as possible! Visit for detailed information on registration, accommodation, and the full conference program. For inquiries, contact us at (876) 978- 8950 or email

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Kingston!
