The Caribbean Desalination Association (CaribDA) officially kicked off it’s Young Leaders Program (YLP) at the CaribDA’s 2016 Biennial (YLP) Biennial Conference & Exposition in Trinidad on June 01st 2016. The YLP is open to all students and young professionals working in or seeking to work in the desalination and water reuse sectors, in or serving the Greater Caribbean region. Our initiative promotes interest in desalination and water reuse and aims to provide a forum that creates opportunities for our members to connect, find career opportunities and advance their careers.

To keep abreast of our upcoming activities, we invite you to ‘like’ our page on Facebook and follow us on Instagram. Our social media accounts are not exclusive to our members so we invite you to share with your colleagues and associates. We also invite readers, especially tertiary level students in Engineering or other technical fields throughout the Caribbean, Latin America and elsewhere, to get involved by becoming members of the Caribbean Desalination Association.
