In an effort to support the promotion of pilot project activities under the Japan Caribbean Climate Change Partnership Project (JCCCP), the Communications Unit in the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Transformation, Forestry, Fisheries, Industry and Labour, received video editing and storage equipment, valued at approximately EC$10,000.

The equipment was handed over to Ms. Maggie Moore, Senior Assistant Secretary, representing the Ministry; by Mr. Ruthvin Harper, National Focal Point, JCCCP.   

The JCCCP is in the process of implementing several pilot projects across the state, which are focusing on sustainable agriculture, community-based climate-smart resilient infrastructure, renewable energy and energy efficiency and building climate change resilience in the cooperative sector in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines for sustainable livelihood, job creation, poverty reduction and food security.
