Sustainable Development Master Plan for Andros Island, The Bahamas

As part of an integrated sustainable development planning process, participatory mapping, scenario planning and modelling were used to explore alternative development options for Andros Island in The Bahamas.

The Office of the Prime Minister, with support of the Inter-American Development Bank, initiated a sustainable development process by a transdisciplinary team of local academics, local consultants and the Natural Capital Project (Stanford U., TNC). The multi-year iterative process included an extensive stakeholder engagement process, participatory mapping, scenario development, ecosystem-service modelling and cumulative risk assessment. With broad stakeholder support, one of the scenarios - the Sustainable Prosperity scenario - became the foundation of the Sustainable Development Master Plan for Andros Island
