The Government of Jamaica’s Ministry of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change (MWLECC) convened a workshop Climate Change: Toward the Development of a Policy Framework for Jamaica in Kingston, Jamaica on July 26 and 27, 2012. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) supported organization of the workshop. The objective was to develop inputs for a policy framework that will enable Jamaica to achieve its Vision 2030 national development goals in the context of climate change, as requested by Prime Minister Portia Simpson-Miller and Minister Pickersgill at the launch of the Climate Change Advisory Committee on April 20, 2012.
The event was attended by more than 150 individuals, including representatives from ministries, agencies, and other entities within the Government of Jamaica; NGOs and civil society; academia; the private sector; and international development partners. Sessions built on the Vision 2030 Jamaica – National Development Plan, the Second National Communication of Jamaica to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), and the Jamaica Pilot Program for Climate Resilience.
