Members of the Caribbean Consultative Working Group (CCWG) will unite to focus on the collective advocacy theme of ‘Sustainable Energy for All’ in the Caribbean. 

The CCWG is a means for Caribbean civil society actors to learn from each other and share best practices on policy advocacy in the region. In addition to attending capacity building workshops facilitated by the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) with support from the Commonwealth Foundation, the group will pool their collective experience to build a strategy to advocate on one policy issue. 

Representing the Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN), Elijah James explained that despite the different organisations involved in the CCWG, Sustainable Energy was a theme that affected everybody in the CARICOM region: “We’re currently now working on [this] theme because of how important energy is to the Caribbean region itself, and more importantly how high the cost of energy is here in the region, which is obviously affecting not only consumers but our economic activity as well. It affects everybody – businesses, consumers, everybody. And we’re right now at that point where we are actually as a group working on our strategic approaches as CCWG.”
