Nine Mornings before Christmas, Vincentians awake in the early hours of the morning and partake in a range of activities, among them sea baths, dances (or in local parlance, fetes), bicycle riding and street concerts. In the rural areas, the final morning of the festivity usually ends with a steel band “jump-up”.The origins of this festivity are clouded in some mystery, although the original tradition relates it to the ‘novena’ of the Catholic Church on the nine days before Christmas. It is believed that after the early morning church services of the Catholics, worshippers began walking the streets while others went for sea baths. From this the popular Nine Mornings festivity emerged. Although popular opinion has this practice as starting during the period of slavery, it was more likely to have been a post-emancipation practice.

The theme of resilience was brought into focus during the Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB) presentations at the 2018 Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) in Miami, Florida from November 7 to 9. Speaking during the opening of the Island Resiliency Action Challenge event, on November 7, CDB’s Vice-President (Operations), Monica La Bennett noted that the energy sector is central to every country’s goal of achieving sustainable development, and emphasised the importance of improving the resilience of the electricity grid. “The Region has identified improving the resilience of electricity systems and by extension, the energy sector, as a key component of its energy matrix transformation. Any plan for improving the resilience of our electricity systems must be seen as part of the overall strategy for building economic resilience. In fact, it must now be seen as an imperative linked to the very sustainability and survival of our Region,” said La Bennett. The Vice-President noted that even as countries continue to pursue renewable energy solutions, they must seek to ensure that decisions are underpinned by careful analysis of the associated costs and benefits. She therefore encouraged stakeholders to make use of concessionary resources such as those available through the Green Climate Fund and the Adaptation Fund. La Bennett observed that determining the level of resilience to be incorporated, and the associated investment required, will require that several areas be considered. “Arriving at the correct answer will involve an iterative process of discovery and learning, informed by national, regional and international experiences. This, in turn, provides opportunities for innovation, collaboration and sharing of information among countries. In order to ensure fair allocation of the costs to be absorbed by consumers, the right regulatory framework must be in place,” said La Bennett. The Island Resiliency Action Challenge was sponsored by CDB with the support of the Government of Canada through the Canadian Support to the Energy Sector in the Caribbean Fund. During the workshop, participants discussed how to improve resilience, and invest scarce human and capital resources over the next 12 months, in order to create climate-resilient electricity grids.

The Meeting was held as preparations heighten for the start of the 2020 Round of Housing and Population Census. CARICOM has traditionally adopted a regionally coordinated approach to Census activities. This has led to benefits including greater harmonisation of the census results; knowledge-sharing; adoption of best practices; functional and technical cooperation; cost-savings through the availability of regional public goods; and regional training. The Census is part of an integrated programme of the CARICOM Regional Statistics Work Programme and from the 2010 Census Round, the RCCC has met on a continuous basis in acknowledgement of the importance of the Census to the body of statistics being produced in the National Statistical Systems.

Library patrons can check out the libraries’ offerings at their webpage.“I would like for the public to know that even though we are physically closed, there are a number of resources available online in digital format,” Library Manager Eileen Sullivan said. “And our library staff is working behind the scenes to increase access to our eBooks and audiobooks and other digital services.”Online, library patrons can find anything from streaming music and movies to eBooks and eMagazines.Sullivan said the library provides access to a variety of electronic content through Overdrive and Hoopla.

Some need entertainment and distraction … other people have very specific information needs – whether homeschooling a child, learning a new skill, or staying informed about our current crisis and I think it is important for us to be present and available to offer services to the community during this time.”For questions, information or assistance, library staff is available to help.
