Womensâ€™ Empowerment Symposium - Milestone Development
Testimony By Tecla Fontenard, Saint Lucia
The launch ceremony will take place at "Our Planet" a state of the art cinema theatre in downtown Castries and the agenda will include the preview screening of selected episodes in the series, and performances on climate change related issues.
An estimated 60 guests are expected to attend the ceremony, representing local, national, regional and international agencies involved in environmental conservation and climate change related work in the OECS region.
Fontenard said the first time TV series initiative, produced by the OECS Secretariat features climate change impacts and solutions, "with an emphasis on issues related the water, tourism and agricultural sectors, as well as highlights on vulnerabilities to coastal areas, and increased exposure to natural disasters, such as hurricanes."
As part of SETA, the OECS Secretariat has awarded a contract to a consulting firm to begin work this month on developing an OECS Regional Energy Efficiency Strategy (OECS-REES) and Action Plan, complimented by National Strategies and Action Plans.
Fontenard said that the developed OECS-REES and National Strategies would incorporate, among other things, all aspects of efficiency improvements of the energy utilization sectors, including elements related to transportation and potable water.
The plans will also identify interventions to be implemented for each energy utilisation sector in OECS member countries.
"In the development of the Regional Energy Efficiency Strategy, the consultant is expected to examine current approaches being used to develop national renewable energy resources, and will make recommendations for regional approaches to improving energy efficiency across all sectors of OECS member countries,"
