Project Update, December 2013

As the sun begins to set on 2013, the team at the CLP Regional Project Office (RPO) can readily identify with the wisdom of the Ghanaian Sankofa.

CARICOM Energy Week 2013

CARICOM Energy Week 2013 (10th – 16th November) marked the third year that this annual regional event was held since it was mandated by the Ministers of Energy in 2011. CARICOM Energy Week (CEW) aims to build awareness of energy issues with a particular focus on renewable energy and energy efficiency and conservation. Since that decision, CARICOM Energy Week has featured prominently on the calendar of events for most CARICOM countries.  CEW 2013 was staged under the theme "A secure and Sustainable Energy Future Begins Now!" which aimed to highlight the urgency for action, and was marked by a wide range of energy awareness activities, in CARICOM Member States and at the Regional level. Read More >>
