The project offers a broader perspective to poverty measurement and eradication efforts by attempting to understand and address the complex nature of poverty and the dynamic ways in which it affects various groups.
2015 represents the end of an ambitious cycle in the international development agenda, and at the same time, a tremendous opportunity to review the priority areas and improve the ways in which we address them.
The SocialInnov4Change is a project designed by the United Nations Development Programme for Barbados and the OECS aimed at bringing young people together to find solutions to social problems and challenges within communities in Saint Lucia.
The Youth-IN project is about empowering young people to become agents of change, not to just sit by and receive support but to become actively involved in the development of their own sustainable future.
The project will be closely aligned to the UNDP global roll-out of the PDNA initiative. UNDP has been collaborating with global partners – UNDG, World Bank and the European Union in reviewing and adapting the PDNA methodology based on experience in applying this tool and capacity building initiatives.
The project will realise the strengthening of institutional capacities, and enhancing public awareness and education programmes for tsunamis and other coastal hazards through support to the Caribbean Tsunami Information Centre (CTIC).
This project seeks to create an enabling environment that can facilitate the adoption of Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) EWS by other countries in the region through systemisation of the process and lessons learned.
This initiative takes an integrated approach to vulnerability reduction and enhancing resilience to climate change, natural hazards and poverty through enhanced civil protection. It covers Barbados and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States. The project focuses on knowledge sharing and building linkages across Caribbean institutions, capacity development, and advancing the linkages between climate change and disaster risk reduction.
The communities targeted under the present action are located in low lying coastal areas, and are therefore particularly vulnerable to rapidly forming events generating flood both from rainfall and from coastal hazards such as storm surges. Tsunamis are also a threat which tends to be overlooked.
The Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (J-CCCP) is designed to strengthen the capacity of countries in the Caribbean to invest in climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies, as prioritised in their Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs).
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.
Consultants have been appointed to support the development of the INDC for Barbados and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, for submission to the UNFCCC and for COP21. The aim will be to produce a document similar to those provided by other Parties and submitted to the INDC portal.
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.
This 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.
