A few highlights of climate change initiatives:

A few climate change initiatives are illustrated here. Note that there are several others that are directly executed by other governmental and non-governmental agencies that are not referenced below.  Some have been highlighted in the appendices to Saint Lucia Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) for Water, Agriculture and Fisheries.  Others are referenced in Saint Lucia’s Initial, Second and Third National Communications to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). There are also a number of renewable energy-related interventions (mitigation) that are not highlighted at this time.  The Department of Sustainable Development continues to lend support to climate change initiatives in its role as Climate Change Focal Point.

  • National Adaptation Plan (NAP)
  • Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA)
  • Green Architecture Promotion Pilot (GAPP) toward Building Resilience to the Adverse Effects of Climate Change
  • Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Project (DVRP), including Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR)
  • Promoting Mango Biodiversity in Saint Lucia towards Sustainable Land Management, Enhanced Food and Nutrition Security and Sustainable Livelihoods in the Face of Climate Change

National Adaptation Plan (NAP)

Project Date: 2016-2018 Funder/Implementing Entity: United Nations Development Programme-Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (UNDP’s JCCCP) AND United States (U.S.) In-Country NAP Support Programme (NAP-SP), implemented by the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)AND Technical support for the chapter on the ‘limits to adaptation’ in the NAP was provided under the IMPACT project, funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), as part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). Amount: (Not including in-kind contribution), USD 68,960 (Japan), USD 115,000 (US), Staff time not costed (Germany) Saint Lucia’s National Adaptation Plan (NAP) has been defined as a ten (10)-year process (2018-2028) consisting of priority cross-sectoral and sectoral adaptation measures for eight key sectors/areas and a segment on the ‘limits to adaptation’, complemented, incrementally, with Sectoral Adaptation Strategies & Action Plans (SASAPs). Priority sectors and areas for adaptation action include: Tourism; Water; Agriculture; Fisheries; Infrastructure and spatial planning; Natural resource management (terrestrial, coastal and marine); Education; and Health. Other key sectors and areas will be identified through a cyclical, iterative NAP process.     Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans (SASAPs) have been prepared, in this first instance, for Water, Agriculture, Fisheries and Tourism. The latter was prepared in 2015 as part of an initiative implemented by the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), as part of the EU-Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) initiative. Documents produced under Saint Lucia’s NAP process include:

  • Saint Lucia's National Adaptation Plan (NAP) 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s National Adaptation Plan Stocktaking, Climate Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Report
  • Saint Lucia’s National Adaptation Plan Roadmap and Capacity Development Plan 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s Climate Change Communications Strategy
  • Saint Lucia’s Sectoral Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan for the Water Sector (Water SASAP) 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s Sectoral Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan for the Agriculture Sector (Agriculture SASAP) 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s Sectoral Adaptation Strategy and Action Plan for the Fisheries Sector (Fisheries SASAP) 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s Portfolio of Project Concept Notes for the Water Sector 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s Portfolio of Project Concept Notes for the Agriculture Sector 2018-2028
  • Saint Lucia’s Portfolio of Project Concept Notes for the Fisheries Sector 2018-2028
  • Monitoring and Evaluation Plan of Saint Lucia’s National Adaptation Planning Process
  • Guidelines for the Development of Sectoral Adaptation Strategies and Action Plans: Saint Lucia’s experience under its national adaptation planning process
  • Individualised Snapshots of Water, Agriculture and Fisheries SASAPs

This process also supported a climate change website, an animated video (English and Kweyol), training for government entities and journalists in communicating about climate change and a NAP poster.  A NAP Assembly and Donor Symposium were also all made possible under this process.
