Barbados, with assistance from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), is installing pockets of disaster resilience, in the form of photovoltaic systems, across the island.

The Caribbean Media Corporation said Barbados Minister of Energy and Water Resources, Wilfred Abrahams, made this observation as he highlighted the key objective attained by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) DREAM (Disaster Risk and Energy Access Management) Project.

Minister Abrahams was speaking at the ‘flip the switch’ ceremony, at the St. Mark’s Resource Community Centre, St. Philip, photovoltaic (PV) system launch.

The Project commenced in December 2015, and should be completed in November of this year.
