The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and UWI are doing a survey in several Caribbean countries as the basis for a health and climate project.
In a press release issued on Thursday, they said the aim of the survey is to understand what people in the Caribbean know about the links between climate change and their health.
"It is a fundamental tool to obtain reference information for the project that will last five years with funding from the European Union," explained the statement.
The survey is being carried out through Digicel. It is aimed at adults in TT, Antigua, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Lucia and Barbados. It is also available on the PAHO and UWI social networks.
The statement added: "Respondents will be asked to complete a short questionnaire that should take about ten minutes and participation is completely voluntary, anonymous, and individual data will not be shared."
The project is being implemented by PAHO and has as partners Caricom, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, the Caribbean Public Health Agency, the Caribbean Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology, and UWI.
Other UN agencies and universities will also participate, such as St George's University, Grenada.
