Working with The World Resources Institute (WRI) and the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET), Blue Raster has built Development Alert!, for the WRI Access initiative. This free, mobile-friendly site provides the public with greater access to information about development projects that affect the environment and human health. The site plots both approved and proposed large-scale development projects along with overlays of protected areas, fisheries, forest reserves and land cover so users can easily identify projects in or around environmentally sensitive areas. In Jamaica, Development Alert! is helping to promote transparency and public involvement in projects, initiatives that are a first throughout Jamaica and the Caribbean.
