Dominica, given its susceptibility to natural disasters, continues to pursue its sustainable development goals and will soon put into effect its national Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR).

On April 30th, 2013 in Washington DC, representatives from the Government of the Dominica presented a national Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) and received endorsement from the Caribbean Regional Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) Sub-Committee.

As a result Dominica was selected as one of the countries to participate in the PPCR which is part of the Strategic Climate Fund (SCF), a multi-donor Trust Fund within the Climate Investment Funds (CIF).

The Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) articulates a strategic vision to support the country’s transformation to a low-carbon climate resilient development path within the government’s national development planning process.

Dominica’s Environment Minister, Dr. Kenneth Darroux, in an interview with the Government Information Service (GIS) recently, said he is hopeful that Dominica will soon benefit from a thirty million US dollar facility which was approved to undertake this important climate resilience project.

“When we speak of sustainable development, Dominica continues to pursue its own objectives at a national level. You would know of our SPCR Project with the World Bank and the Climate Investment Fund where we have qualified for 30 plus million US dollars which should be available somewhere during this calendar year or the coming year,” the Minister stated

Dominica’s national Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR) is the result from a series of consultations with national stakeholders, including civil society, NGOs, private sector, and Government agencies.

Dominica’s SPCR is designed to complement regional activities designed to affront future climate change impacts and climate variability in the Eastern Caribbean.

      Look how the DLP running while there leader had said they were not sleeping why is it so difficult for the PM and his ministers afraid to debate and the sadest thing is that the other ministers cannot say yes they will debate unless their boss gives the OK, I said we have to get those guy out of power at the poll.
