PRESS RELEASE – The Laborie Development Foundation (LDF) is currently implementing a project funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) entitled Creating Sustainable Communities – Building Local Capacity for Adaptation to Climate Change and for Managing Related Issues in the village of Laborie.
The project was designed as an initial step towards building greater resilience of the community to the impacts of climate change. One component of the project involves the formulation of planning guidelines for Laborie Village.
A consultancy was issued in May 2016 to Planning Engineering & Surveying International (PESlnternational), an independent consulting firm with offices in Saint Lucia and Grenada to undertake this component of the project.
The consultants have now submitted their Draft Report with Recommendations for Planning Guidelines for Laborie Village; and the LDF has therefore scheduled a Community Consultation from 10am to 1pm on 18 November 2016 to facilitate presentation and discussion of these Recommendations.
The venue for this consultation has been changed to the Conference Room, Laborie Cooperative Credit Union, Laborie.
The LDF anticipates that there will be between 30-40 participants representing local organisations, individuals, and government agencies at this consultation which seeks to continue dialogue on a resilience framework for the community of Laborie.
Please contact the LDF for confirmation and any additional information that you may require by calling our office at telephone 455-9910 or Mr. Lucius Ellevic at 721-8691.
