The MoU between the ACS & CARILEC commits to work toward improving regional resilience of electrical systems after disasters.
The MoU will enable the two organisations to:
- exchange experiences, lessons learned and best practices in disaster risk management and emergency response procedures in the context of increasing resilience in the wider Caribbean region;
- strengthen capacities in electric utilities for mitigation, management and responding to disasters;
- allow for efficient movement of utility personnel to perform damage response and restoration activities
- raise awareness of CARILEC in the sub-regions of the ACS through information sharing related to exchange programmes, internships, study tours, conferences, seminars and horizontal cooperation programmes.
