REDD+

The Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines was approved for a second Readiness support grant which will assist with the capacity building and planning mechanism to guide the country in becoming REDD+ ready. In light of this, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), on behalf of the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning, Sustainable Development and Information Technology, National Designated Authority (NDA), hired AAE to develop a comprehensive National REDD+ Strategy and Action Plan, which will guide the country towards participation in the REDD+ mechanism. This will be achieved through participatory actions in the form of stakeholder engagement, training and working sessions with the Forestry Division, National REDD+ Steering Committee (NRSC) and other key stakeholders.

  • Engage the NRSC and the NC to develop the Strategy and Action Plan;
