Within the CCREEE’s climate resilience strategic programme, the Centre is undertaking the development of Integrated Resource and Resilience Plans (IRRPs) for several CARICOM Member States. These IRRPs are facilitated by kind financial support from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the European Union (EU) and technical support from the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), through the Technical Assistance Programme for Sustainable Energy in the Caribbean (TAPSEC).
Support for this capacity development session is provided through kind contributions from the US National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) via the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Training support is provided by the Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH).
