Sustainable Climate Results
Anaitee Mills (right), Project Manager, Climate Change Division of the InterAmerican Development Bank listens keenly as Claire Bernard, Deputy Director General, Sustainable Development and Social Planning at the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) shares about the results of the five projects being implemented under the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR) in Jamaica. Both ladies were at a workshop on project results held at the Terra Nova Hotel in Kingston last week. The PIOJ is the focal point for the PPCR. About US$37.5 million has been spent for the implementation of the five projects designed to mainstream climate change into Jamaica’s policies and programmes while also building the islands capacity to respond to impacts such as flash flooding, drought and stronger hurricanes.
