A plan to cut electricity consumption by more than a fifth and slash costs by more than $500 million over the next 15 years.

That’s part of Barbados’ strategy to deal with the adverse effects of climate change while accelerating the pace of its environmental programme to usher in a green economy.

The plans were outlined to the United Nations Climate Change Summit in New York yesterday by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart.

In a ten-minute speech at the opening of the two-day summit being attended by more than 100 heads of state or government, Stuart also called for greater cooperation between the “most vulnerable” countries and their developed partners.
