Share post:

Meshia Clarke is currently in the United States participating in the US Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Programme (IVLP). She is taking part in a three-week project on Renewable Energy and Sustainability, from August 13 to August 31.

Clarke is the executive director of the Barbados Renewable Energy Association. In this role, which she has held for just over one year, she is responsible for the strategic repositioning of the association as well as programme development and execution. She spent five years as the programme officer-trade policy and advocacy at the Barbados Coalition of Service Industries Inc.

During the programme, participants will examine US efforts to promote international cooperation on global sustainability. This three-week project will allow participants to examine global change indicators, risks, and adaptation measures. Participants will examine efforts to further develop low-carbon technologies, and the diversification and use of renewable energy.

Clarke will join her counterparts from 22 other countries, including Iraq, Belgium, Vietnam, Guyana, and Egypt. Participants will analyse innovations in clean energy and alternative fuel science. This programme will introduce participants to US energy policies at the international, federal, state and local levels.

The programme began yesterday in Washington, D.C., and includes travel to at least four cities across the United States including Orlando, Florida; Denver, Colorado; Des Moines, Iowa; and Salt Lake City, Nevada. The programme ends in Reno, Nevada, on August 31. (PR)
