energy in power generation, opportunities can be created for the establishment of new industries and sustainable employment. Additionally, empowering the citizens to make more economically and environmentally wiser choices, will complement efforts to change attitudes toward other areas of the environment. Strategic Initiatives/Actions 2.1 Assess the renewable energy potential Conduct a wind resource assessment survey to determine the feasibility of wind-generated power and citing of potential wind farms. A similar examination to maximise the potential of solar power will be undertaken, including deployment of commercially available technology such as solar street lighting. A demonstration project of solar lighting on the Priority Bus Route will be implemented. 2.2 Promote investment in renewable energy generation plants Government will provide the incentives for investment in renewable energy power plants. 2.3 Greater utilization of clean technology Government will provide the incentives for the use of cleaner technology in the industrial sector, and alternative fuels and energy sources in the transportation sector. 2.4 Develop and implement greenhouse gas mitigation strategies Nationally appropriate greenhouse gas mitigation actions will be designed and implemented in keeping with international guidelines. Strategic Initiatives/Actions 3.1 Determine Areas of Greatest Climate Risk Identify climate vulnerability and risk in various sectors through the Conduct of Vulnerability and Risk Assessments to the projected impacts of climate change. 3.2 Design and implement adaptation actions for vulnerable sectors Adaptation options implemented based on vulnerability and risk assessments. Goal 3: Climate vulnerability will be assessed As a small island developing state, Trinidad and Tobago is particularly vulnerable to the projected impacts of climate change. This includes sea level rise which could result in coastal flooding, loss of habitats, loss of property and livelihoods, and loss of agricultural land. This can also have a severe impact on the stability of our economy. It is necessary therefore to identify vulnerable areas/ communities in order to design and implement effective adaptation strategies. Effective adaptation

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
