Situated across the hilly interiors of northeast St. Catherine in Jamaica, lies the rural community of Glengoffe, which comprises fourteen (14) smaller sub-communities consisting of approximately 5,000 people. This community is known for its spirit of self-reliance and resilience, as well as for its Climate Change Adaptation Project, which was the winner of the global UN Volunteers Award for Volunteering Matters for Sustainable Development 2012, in a competition organized as a lead up to the Rio 2012 Sustainable Development Conference.
Young leaders from the beautiful Caribbean countries of Barbados, Dominica, St. Kitts & Nevis, The Bahamas, Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago, St. Lucia, Montserrat, Antigua & Barbuda, Belize, Grenada and Suriname all congregated in Jamaica between September 19-21, 2012 at the Four Seasons Hotel, for a most useful and important training workshop on Social Audit.
UNDP is supporting the Government of Jamaica in meeting its obligations under the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. A new project titled Hydrochlorofluorocarbon Phase Out Management Plan (HPMP), first stage Implementation was launched in June 2012.
the year 2000, almost 1 million people have lost their lives to disasters
caused by natural hazards. 2 billion people have been affected. 1 trillion
dollars in damage was caused.
Every one dollar spent on preparing for disasters could save seven dollars in response. Yet, the international community is spending only 1% of aid on disaster preparedness.
We can't prevent disasters, but we can help prevent the human tragedies they cause. Join our campaign, #ActNow, Save Later!
