Barbados will become the first Caribbean country to develop an Integrated Climate Risk Management (ICRM) Roadmap for its Renewable Energy Sector.
This is being made possible through the funding support of the German International Development Corporation (GIZ) and the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII).
Word of this came from Executive Director of the Barbados Renewable Energy Association (BREA), Meshia Clarke, while addressing the opening of the ICRM Roadmap Workshop, held at Courtyard by Marriott, yesterday.
“…Our country’s development agenda towards a 100% renewable energy and carbon neutral island state is an important one which is also premised on climate resilience. The ICRM Project is therefore critical and timely, at this juncture of our country’s development as we forge ahead towards complete energy transformation.”
