Caribbean Regional Sustainable Energy High Level Seminar:
Implementation of CREBAP

Two regional sustainable energy events to be held on July 23 and 24, 2008 at the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort in Nassau, the Bahamas

The Department for Sustainable Development, IADB, IICA and the Government of the United States are collaborating to convene the Caribbean Regional Sustainable Energy High Level Seminar on July 23, 2008. On the following day, July 24, 2008, a Seminar entitled Opportunities for Renewable Energy in the Caribbean, sponsored by the Government of the United States will be convened.

The synergy of these two events provides the possibility of gathering the main energy and agro-energy stakeholders of the Caribbean for a regional effort to promote the implementation of the CREBAP and to facilitate the expansion of sustainable energy development throughout the Caribbean.

Objectives of the Seminar

The Caribbean Regional Sustainable Energy High Level Seminar is designed to offer a forum to high level participants from Caribbean Governments and the donor community for identifying:

  1. Key impediments to promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency alternatives;
  2. Priority technical and capacity building needs, and
  3. Opportunities for rationalizing and improving coordination among the many entities working in the region. CREBAP will be presented as an effective instrument to address these issues.
