A two day Validation Workshop on the Needs Assessment and Project Document for the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE) has commenced in Dominica.

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in cooperation with SIDS DOCK (represented by the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre) and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) are assisting Caribbean Countries in the establishment of the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE).

SIDS DOCK and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) have launched a consultative preparatory process for the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Centre (CCREEE). The 2-day workshop, scheduled for 21 to 22 July 2014, in the Commonwealth of Dominica, will update participants on the preparatory process.
