Preservation of Heritage/Built Culture in Anguilla and encouraging women involvement in the construction sector

Preservation of Heritage/Built Culture in Anguilla and encouraging women involvement in the construction sector

In Anguilla, a Small Innovation Project has been implemented to preserve the built culture and encourage women participation and inclusion in the construction sector. Both elements of this initiative fall within the construction sector. Both are encouraging OCTs to rethink how best is possible to preserve or rebuild buildings of historical or cultural significance and how to break free of conventional stereotypes that exclude women from employment in the construction sector.

The passage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria caused a significant amount of damage to the built infrastructure of all OCTs affected. In Anguilla alone, more than 95% of the culturally significant buildings were completely destroyed or received varying degrees of damage rendering these structures unusable or unsafe. The built heritage is a defining factor of the region so is important to identify innovative ways to preserve it from climate change and its resulting effects.
