Massive port project on Jamaica's Goat Islands threatens livelihoods, wildlife; NGOs fight back. http://t.co/OaGd3MNjH7 @ecoindex
Marian Locksley's insight:
Parchment speculates that public opinion has been partially influenced by previous development failures in Jamaica. In 2011, for example, Jamaica’s newest cruise ship port was opened in Falmouth, a coastal town on the north shore. To drum up local support, developers promised the local community that the port would bring new jobs and increased income from tourism. However, this has not been the case.
Tourists who arrive at the port tend to dine and shop at expensive international chains along the pier and go on excursions organized by the cruise lines, often having zero interaction with locally-owned businesses. In addition, construction of the port caused major damage to the coral reefs and mangroves around Falmouth. The communities of Portland Bight, fearing a parallel situation on the Goat Islands, remain skeptical of any economic benefits from the proposed transshipment hub.
