  • SIDS DOCK Support Programme: C'bean Energy Efficiency Lighting ProjectSIDS DOCK Support Programme: C'bean Energy Efficiency Lighting ProjectThis project is part of the SIDS DOCK Support Program project pipeline, and will seek to catalyze the transition to low carbon economies and sustainable energy sectors through the provision of energy efficient (EE) lighting to communities in the Eastern Caribbean (SIDS DOCK Member countries). The project should assist countries in removing the policy, capacity and investment barriers to energy efficient (EE) lighting.

  • Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies (ICCAS)Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies (ICCAS)The overarching objective of the Programme on Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in Grenada (ICCAS) is to increase resilience of vulnerable communities and ecosystems to climate change risks in Grenada through integrated adaptation approaches.

  • Disaster Risk and Energy Access Management (DREAM)Disaster Risk and Energy Access Management (DREAM)The objective of the Project is to reduce GHG emissions from fossil fuel-based power generation by demonstrating the exploitation of renewable energy resources for electricity generation in Barbados. To achieve this objective and strengthen the country’s Disaster Risk Response (DRR), the Project will promote decentralized solar photo-voltaic electricity generation in Barbados at community development centers and poly-clinics throughout the country.

  • Capacity Building Sustainable Land ManagementCapacity Building Sustainable Land ManagementSustainable land management (SLM) involves the use of terrestrial resources and ecosystems e.g. soils, plants to provide goods and services e.g. food, drinking water, fuel, timber, without detriment to the long-term productive potential of these resources and their environmental functions. SLM is critical to minimizing and rehabilitating the effects of land degradation, and ensuring optimal use of resources for sustainable development and poverty alleviation.


Energy and environment are essential for sustainable development. The poor are disproportionately affected by environmental degradation and lack of access to clean affordable energy services. These issues are also global as climate change, loss of biodiversity and ozone layer depletion cannot be addressed by countries acting alone. Globally, UNDP helps countries strengthen their capacity to address these challenges at global, national and community levels, seeking out and sharing best practices, providing innovative policy advice and linking partners through pilot projects that help poor people build sustainable livelihoods.
