The aim of this program is to develop internal capabilities to conserve and manage beach and nearshore resources. The program covered six islands, Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia, Dominica, St. Kitts - Nevis, and Antigua (Fig. 1), and was divided into three phases. Phase I consisted of a preliminary survey of beach conditions in the six islands which was conducted in February-March, 1985. A report was published by UNESCO following this phase. Phase 2 was an awareness seminar held for two days in each of the six islands in July, 1985. Phase 3 is a training program held in Barbados.
