UNITED NATIONS (UN) HEADQUARTERS, NEW YORK CITY, 5 October 2015

On 30 September 2015, the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Sustainable Energy and Climate Resilience Initiative – SIDS DOCK – celebrated the entry into force of the SIDS DOCK Treaty, recognising the establishment of the historic intergovernmental organisation vested with the full powers of the United Nations (UN). The Ceremony of the Establishment of SIDS DOCK was chaired by Dr. The Hon. Ralph Everard Gonsalves, Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Acting Chair of the SIDS DOCK Steering Committee, in the absence of the Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica and Chair of the SIDS DOCK Steering Committee, who was unavoidably absent due to the destructive impacts of Tropical Storm Erika, in August 2015.


2 October 2015 – A framework for climate change “cannot wait,” Grenada’s Foreign Minister said today, joining other leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean calling for urgent action in the United Nations General Assembly.

“The impacts of climate change are already being felt the world over,” said Clarice Modeste-Curwen, warning that without a successful legally binding agreement in Paris, “we will see climate change continue unabated.”

 


BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (BGIS) -- A Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency is to be established in Barbados, said minister with responsibility for energy, Senator Darcy Boyce, when he met with Paolo Serpi, Italy’s special envoy to the Caribbean, on Monday.


The Thirty-Sixth Regular Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), held at Bridgetown, Barbados, 2-4 July 2015, endorsed the establishment of the "Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE)" as the implementation hub for sustainable energy activities and projects within the region.


The Pacific Islands will soon have a regional centre of excellence in renewable energy and energy efficiency to support efforts to accelerate the adoption of feasible renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies across the region.   

The hosting arrangement for the centre is being discussed this week at the Vienna Energy Forum being held by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) in Austria from 18 to 20 June.
