Do you have a Caribbean property story to share? Well here is your opportunity to shine by posting your story on the Caribbean Land and Property Blog.
We are looking for your contributions of 300-400 word blog posts on developing or maintaining property in the Caribbean, especially those which have an environmental component.
Are you building your own home or have an unusual tale to tell? Are you installing solar, micro-hydro or even a windmill? Do you live self-sufficiently off your land or have you created a large farm? Well we want to ensure your experience and expertise is acknowledged and shared with the rest of the Caribbean region.
We are also interested in hearing from architects, planners and renewable energy businesses with features on how we can sustainably develop, enhance and protect property in the Caribbean.
The Caribbean Property blog is now open as your forum to educate and inform our readership. At the same time you will get some publicity for your project or business with a brief bio, link to your website and other contact details provided at the end of your post.
For more information or to submit an idea, please contact email@example.com
Caribbean heads of government recently met in a two-day regional Agricultural Investment Forum to discuss the rising cost of food and the crisis it presents the region. James Moss-Solomon, a Jamaican businessman who headed the planning task force for the forum said “there has been no other time in recent Caribbean memory when such a concerted effort has been made to grow more food.” As the region pours more resources into growing more food the future looks bright for agricultural investments in the fertile land of the Caribbean.
In fact the overall global trend in the price for agricultural land has shown a sharp and continuing increase. For example, in 2007, the price for farmland in Iowa, USA was, for the first time, rising faster than property in Manhattan! This shift in the cost of land is occurring from Argentina to Australia and is signaling an increase in rural rather than urban development.
