Antigua Sun: Officials gather in Antigua to discuss environmental concerns
Tuesday September 09 2008
The government of Antigua and Barbuda will be hosting a week of Inter-governmental meetings (IGM) focussed on issues relating to the environment.
The meetings are part of the Caribbean Environmental Programme (CEP) and cover the region of Latin America and the Caribbean.
Representatives from other countries including the US and other Caricom territories will be present.
Yesterday’s meeting revolved around the Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife (SPAW), and tomorrow will begin the meeting of the IGM in which representatives from other regions will participate.
These meetings are held once a year and this year Antigua was selected as the host country.
The meetings will be technical in nature and will scrutinize the CEP programme, review events of the past year and make adjustments to ensure better results for the future.
The discussions are being held in the Hibiscus Conference Room at the Jolly Beach Hotel and will continue into the week, ending on Friday.
The Caribbean Environment Programme (CEP) is one of the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) administered Regional Seas Programmes. The CEP is managed by and for the countries of the Wider Caribbean Region through the Caribbean Action Plan outlining regional environmental challenges.
