The Government of Saint Lucia, through the Ministry of Infrastructure, has signed a Memorandum of understanding with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).
This MOU sets a framework for strategic co-operation between the Department of Infrastructure planning and development, procurement of goods, works and services, institutional capacity building, and mobilisation of funding to support climate resilient infrastructure planning and development.
UNOPS has also signed an MOU with WASCO. It is anticipated that subsequent to the signing of these Memoranda of Understanding the Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Transport and WASCO expect to initiate collaboration with UNOPS.
In this regard, WASCO will engage UNOPS as a strategic partner to provide support in the development and implementation of climate resilient water projects and associated institutional strengthening activities.
