STRATEGY AND PLAN TO INCREASE ENERGY RESILIENCE IN GRENADA HIGH ON THE AGENDA
St. George — Grenadian leaders and professionals from the energy and climate change, water, waste management, tourism and agriculture sectors will convene in St. George, Grenada, for three days, beginning 26 August, to discuss and contribute to the development of a global strategy and plan for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to increase energy resilience, and to test a methodology aimed at helping identify the role of renewable energy and energy efficiency and conservation (RE & EE&C).
The workshop is in follow up to a Mission to Grenada in May 2015, by the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, SIDS DOCK and the Swedish Energy Agency.
SIDS DOCK, the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Sustainable Energy Initiative, is a mechanism established by the SIDS to catalyse the transformation of the energy sector of Island Nations to increase energy security, reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and generate resources for investment in adaptation to climate change.
