GlobalCAD and GFA Consulting Group GmbH collaborate for a UNDP project

The Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (J-CCCP) aims to support eight Caribbean countries in advancing the process of low-emission risk-resilient development by improving energy security and integrating medium to long-term planning for adaptation to climate change.

Interventions under the Project include supporting policy innovation through the development of a number of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and implementing actual technology that is both low-emission and advances climate risk management, including demonstration in the target countries. The participating countries include Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname.

UNDP, as the implementing agency of the Project, has contracted the consortium of GFA Consulting Group GmbH, Germany and GlobalCAD, Spain to conduct baseline assessments in Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, and Suriname. As part of the baseline assessments, situational analysis and baseline needs assessment in the areas of climate change mitigation and adaptation to propose recommendations for project intervention at policy level (development and implementation process of NAMAs and NAPs) as well as pilot projects at community level, which are aligned with respective government priorities are undertaken.

The outcome of this work will inform about the development and/or implementation of NAMAs and NAPs in the four countries Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, and Suriname, as well as facilitate the implementation of community-based mitigation and adaptation initiatives.
