SIDS Sustainable Energy Event at CSD-14 Highlights Development and Use of Renewables

The 14th session of the UN Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD-14) held in New York (from 01-12 May 2006) was devoted mostly to the theme of sustainable energy. Within this framework, one day was designated to address the energy challenges faced by Small Island Developing States (SIDS). The SIDS Day provided the opportunity to monitor the progress of implementation of the actions, policies and measures related to energy resources in the Barbados Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of SIDS and the Mauritius Strategy. The DSD organized and participated in several events along these themes, together with representatives of OAS member States. A highlight among these events was a side event dedicated to the Global Sustainable Energy Island Initiative (GSEII), a partnership led by the DSD, with the Climate Institute and the Energy and Security Group. During this side event, the Ambassadors of Dominica and St. Kitts and Nevis to the OAS, spoke of the on-going efforts to catalyze the development and use of renewables and energy efficiency through policy and regulatory reforms.
