United Nations Development Programme Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (J-Cccp) Mid Term Evaluation Report

Jan 5, 2019

The Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (J-CCCP) is a regional project designed to strengthen the capacity of Caribbean countries to invest in climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies, as prioritized in their Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and National Adaptation Plans (NAPs). The J-CCCP intervention aims to support the following eight Caribbean countries: Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname based on the achievement of the following outcomes: • Outcome 1: NAMAs and NAPs to promote alternative low emission and climate resilient technologies that can support energy transformation and adaptation in economic sectors are formulated and institutionalized, • Outcome 2: Selected mitigation and adaptation technologies transferred and adopted for low emission and climate resilient development in the Caribbean, and • Outcome 3: Knowledge networks strengthened in Caribbean to foster South-South and North-South cooperation through sharing of experiences surrounding climate change, natural hazard risk and resilience. The signing of a $15 million-dollar grant from the Government of Japan for the J-CCCP project to be implemented by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) took place during the first Japan CARICOM Summit Meeting held in Trinidad on July 28, 2014 with the presence of Mr. Shinzo Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, and the attendance of leaders from 14 CARICOM member states. The Project was officially launched on January 28, 2016 and is currently in its second year of implementation and is scheduled to terminate on December 31, 2018. The Project has experienced delays during the early phase of implementation and as a result the achievement of the planned outputs is behind schedule, albeit that momentum has improved substantially during the last quarters. Less than 50% of the outputs have been completed so far.
