EHF - National Energy Globe Winner Jamaica 2015
Environmental Health Foundation (EHF) was recently awarded by the National Energy Globe (Jamaica) with its coveted and prestigious Energy Globe Award, for outstanding performance in the implementation of the Climate Change Adaptation Project in Cedar Valley, St. Thomas, Jamaica. This project sought to build resilience and adaptation to climate change impacts; secure livelihoods, and enhance quality of life through agriculture, water storage and conservation, and the protection of natural resources. This project was funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), with cost share from the EHF.
This Award is a major accolade to EHF’s list of achievements, specifically in light of the fact that the Energy Globe is one of the most important environmental awards with 177 participating countries and more than 1500 project entries, annually. It is important to note that this award is also presented to outstanding performers of energy efficiency, renewable energy and resource conservation, worldwide. Being presented with this award is a very high recognition as ENERGY GLOBE is an internationally recognized trade mark for sustainability.
As part of this year’s World Environment Day, the project was presented by Energy Globe as part of a global online campaign (www.energyglobe.info) to a wide audience. The campaign which was featured under the patronage of UNESCO and in cooperation with United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), received great recognition and a large echo.
We wish to thank all our valued stakeholders who made our successes possible. We look forward to a sustainable and productive partnership as the EHF continues to enhance the quality of people’s lives.
"To be honored with this award is a great recognition of our work for a better environment and motivates us to continue our endeavors in the future"
