Pursuing Green Economic Policies in a Small Island Coastal Economy – The Barbados Green Economy Scoping Study
Overview The Barbados Green Economy Scoping Study is an output of the Partnership for a Resource- Efficient Green Economy in Barbados between the Government of Barbados and UNEP. The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, was the technical partner for the study.
Background The genesis of the Green Economy Scoping Study (GESS) for Barbados can be traced back to the vision articulated by the late Prime Minister, the Honourable David Thompson, who stated in 2009 that Barbados should focus on becoming “the most environmentally-advanced, green country in Latin America and the Caribbean” .
