During a meeting with the press at the 12th World Conference on Wind Energy that wound up on June 5 at Havana’s Convention Center, Tomasi asserted that this initiative contributes to mitigate the effects of climate change.

The UNDP official highlighted that the selection of Cuba as venue of this world forum is an acknowledgement to the country’s work in terms of energy.

He added that the UNDP is currently working on 20 institutional cooperation projects that will favor the improvement of living conditions of small rural populations and the access to electric service, among other benefits.

Tomasi said that joint programs include the development of solar energy and forest biomass in those settlements. / Source: ACN.
