Program Description

The RVA Climate Change Conference 2012-2021 Program
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, after years of climate change related effects, was devastated by the severe weather disasters of 2010 and 2011.
In response, Richmond Vale Academy (RVA) initiated a program called “The Saint Vincent Climate Compliance Conference 2012 – 2021” (CCC). This program has been a platform from which a springboard of hope has been built; to enable and empower several groups and communities. This program has accomplished widespread tree planting, teaching farmers sustainable agriculture, teaching climate change compliance to thousands of students, producing and distributing scores of climate change leaflets and newspapers, starting sustainable home gardens, setting up biogas digesters, impacting thousands of people in Saint Vincent and abroad.

Richmond Vale Academy works alongside the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines to reach the Climate Compliance goals.

Established in 2002, the Richmond Vale Academy (RVA) is a registered non-profit research and training institution situated in the Chateaubelair area of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). Since opening, students from this country and from around the world have participated in courses centred on poverty reduction, environmental conservation and climate change awareness.
