Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+)

GCCA+: Support to the implementation of Trinidad and Tobago’s Nationally Determined Contribution  is a partnership between the Government of Trinidad and Tobago,  the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the European Union (EU) - will see the installation of solar energy systems at approximately 12 sites across both islands, providing clean energy to NGOs, microenterprises, cooperatives, public institutions and remote communities.

This €2.4M EU-funded project will support national efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the amount of electricity generated from renewable energy sources, as part of the Government’s ongoing efforts to meet its commitments under the Paris Agreement, through the achievement of its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). The multi-year project will also seek to promote a transformative, green economy by demonstrating the benefits of renewable energy and its potential role in creating employment, sustainable development and reducing the environmental risks associated with nonrenewable energy sources. In addition, it will include the strengthening and implementation of renewable energy and energy efficiency policies, legislative and regulatory frameworks, and a public education and awareness raising campaign on the benefits of using renewable energy and adopting energy efficiency practices.
