Dominica is in the process of formulating its strategic program for climate resilience.
Environment Minister Dr. Kenneth Darroux said efforts are ongoing to develop Dominica into a low carbon and climate resilient country.
He was addressing a national consultative workshop on the finding of the technical working groups of Dominica’s pilot program for climate resilience Wednesday.
“Dominica is one of the few vulnerable countries that are receiving support under the pilot program and climate resilience funded by the Climate Investment Fund. We are in the final stages of developing Dominica strategic program for climate resilience which will support our transformation to a climate resilience, low carbon development country,” he said.
Meantime, Director of the Environmental Coordinating Unit Lloyd Pascal is hoping that a National workshop will address issues affecting the country’s environment.
Pascal says the country is not equipped with the instruments to tackle the issues of climate change.
Disaster Risk Management Specialist and Team Leader for the World Bank Justin Lucky said at the end of the exercise, Dominica is expected to develop an investment plan.
