CARICOM Energy Month 2017
| CARICOM Energy Week (CEW) was first established in 2011, as an annual event, through a mandate from CARICOM Energy Ministers to address the need for increased awareness on energy matters, given the critical importance of energy to the economic development of the region. Since its inception, the CEW has been consistently staged within CARICOM Member States as a series of concurrent National Energy Weeks during the second week of November.
| Following a decision to shift from the CEW to an observance of November as CARICOM Energy Month (CEM) in 2016, CEM is being staged for its second year in 2017. CARICOM Energy Month is a celebration of the significant strides that have been made within the CARICOM Region in our transition to a sustainable energy pathway. The ultimate goal is to achieve long-term, lasting behavioral changes. It is intended to engage a wide cross section of society and stakeholders, to ensure that individuals and organizations understand the impacts of, and take action to respond to critical energy issues.
| CARICOM Energy Month is a collaborative initiative of the CARICOM Secretariat, Member States, Regional institutions and development partners engaged in joint advocacy and committed to addressing key energy issues and promoting cooperation based on common interests and needs within the Community.
