Barbados Moves toward Green Economy


The Government of Barbados is moving to green its economy with the help of the United Nations Environment Programme. “My government continues to be committed to that vision and the emphasis at this point is to consolidate and elevate its efforts to engage business and consumers in its road to greening,” said Prime Minister Freundel Stuart. According to the prime minister, it was the vision of late Prime Minister David Thompson to make environmental advancement a priority of the country. Stuart was speaking at the launching of the Green Economy Scoping Study yesterday at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill campus. The study, which will last for six months, will look at interconnections between tourism, housing and agriculture.
