EU rehabilitation assistance for Dominica (St. Lucia News Online)

The European Union has provided Dominica with 3.52 million euros (EC$11.34M) as part of continued assistance towards rehabilitation of the country.

The assistance is part of a total 8.9 million euro (EC$28.5M) programme to rebuild the country’s water infrastructure and also to push towards geothermal energy production.

The EU is assisting the government in establishing a legal framework for the development of geothermal energy and technology. A unit will also be set up to promote geothermal investments, ensure the efficient use of the geothermal resources, and to monitor all safety issues relating to the operation of geothermal plants.
