Sustainable development and water management in the Cockpit Country (Jamaica) : policy efficient perception and practice which sustainability ?

Abstract : This dissertation examines the extent to which the local residents’ perspectives and practices linked to the use of natural resources, such as water, are sustainable. This includes an examination of the role of environmental and non-environmental drivers on water quality within the context of the livelihood systems in the Cockpit Country, Jamaica. The Cockpit Country region is defined by a rounded topography and karst geography, which plays a critical role in the hydrological system. Case study areas consisted of two principal categories: areas with water access points and areas without access points, as water use sources. The research uses an explanatory approach to establish causal linkages between local perspectives and usage of natural resources. New questions include a focus on water usage practices, water security, water access and sustainability within the socio geographic context of livelihood systems
