Dominica may be the first of 8 Caribbean countries to be benefitting from a US$15M climate resilience project. The Japan Caribbean Climate Change Partnership Project which was officially launched in January, is now in its implementation stage.
Dominica’s Environment Minister Dr Kenneth Darroux says Cabinet has approved a 10-member steering committee to get the project underway. He made the remarks at the official media launch of the project Friday.
He confirmed government’s commitment towards ensuring a timely implementation to the project before its 2017 deadline.
Meantime, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Environment Helen Royer says climate change is a challenge, and could seriously impact the country’s development.
The project is funded by the government of Japan. Project Coordinator of the Japan Caribbean Climate Change Partnership is Yoko Episawa.
