A conference organized by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has launched an action plan to accelerate the adoption of renewable energy in small island developing states (SIDS). The Martinique Action Plan (MAP) outlines practical steps for deploying renewable energy resources and technologies in SIDS. It also seeks to demonstrate commitment of 27 SIDS and 19 development partners to the IRENA of SIDS Lighthouses Initiative in the run-up to the 2015 UN Climate Change Conference.
The Martinique Action Plan (MAP) was launched at the ‘Island Energy Transitions: Pathways for Accelerated Uptake of Renewables' conference, organized on Martinique, from 22 to 24 June 2015, by IRENA, in cooperation with the Government of France and the French Region of Martinique.
Currently Cape Verde and São Tomé and Príncipe are strongly supported by IRENA.
