Saint Lucia joined the NDC Partnership in October 2016. The country appointed the Ministry of Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development as its Focal Point. Saint Lucia’s Partnership Plan includes five objectives and offers a detailed overview of the actions needed to reach its ambitious goals for renewable energy generation and energy efficiency, as well as mitigation in the transport sector. The Plan also focuses on ensuring the provision of adequate climate finance and increasing resilience of prioritized economic sectors. The Plan includes the process of creating an enabling environment for climate action by restructuring the policy environment and legal framework, through a new energy policy, an act on electricity supply service, and a Transport Policy and Action Plan. The Saint Lucia NDC Partnership Plan was designed by the Government as a national planning and monitoring tool that would include all sectoral actions towards the NDC objectives, and not only those that require support from international cooperation agencies. The Minister of Finance signaled that USD 23 million from domestic resources could be made available up to 2035 as part of the country’s share towards its NDC.
