GOJ, UWI host Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change on Caribbean visit

The Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation and the University of the West Indies are this week playing hosts to the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) –the world body that assesses the science related to climate change – in a Caribbean outreach event that forms part of Climate Change Awareness Week.

The outreach aims to raise awareness, especially among policymakers and the scientific community in the region, about the IPCC’s role and activities. It will also demonstrate how climate change is affecting the region and highlight solutions to the challenges.

The Caribbean Development Bank, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, the Inter-American Development Bank and Panos Caribbean are also partnering with the ministry and the UWI to host the event. Read more
