GEF-UNEP ESD PROJECT – SECOND MEETING OF THE REGIONAL COORDINATING COMMITTEE (RCC)
BUCCAMENT BAY RESORT, ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES
12-13 OCTOBER 2015
The Energy for Sustainable Development in Caribbean Buildings (ESD) Project represents the first regional project that is piloting energy efficiency improvements in the economy of member states in CARICOM. The project aims to both reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and make the energy sector in the participating pilot countries more efficient and increase their use of renewable energy. There are five pilot countries: Antigua & Barbuda; Belize; Grenada; St. Lucia; and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The purpose of the RCC Meeting is to review the status of coordination and implementation of project activities and their adherence to the work plan set forth in the project document and approve any modifications/revisions as may be necessary; review and approve the annual work plan and budget; make decisions on the issues brought to its notice by UNEP and other collaborating institutions, and advice regarding efficient and timely execution of the project and agreeing to action plans for their resolutions; approve requests for changes (e.g. scope changes, schedule alterations, personnel); provide guidance on the execution of national level activities under the ESD framework at the request of the Project Technical Coordinator/CCCCC.
The Regional Coordination Committee (RCC) is required to meet annually, during the project period. Where appropriate, this will be done back-to-back with relevant regional meetings.
