Description/achievement of initiative
The Island Resilience Partnership (IRP) supports communities on the front-lines of climate change by accelerating their transition toward renewable energy and resilient infrastructure - at no-cost to governments and island stakeholders. The IRP utilizes GridMarket's predictive analytics, mapping technology, and competitive marketplace to design, develop, and deploy distributed energy resources across island in order to achieve climate mitigation and climate adaptation goals.
Built upon GridMarket's platform, the IRP leverages EarthX's philanthropic network, GLISPA's international community of island leaders, and the PVBLIC Foundation's global media reach in order to transform the energy infrastructure of small island developing states.
Arrangements for Capacity-Building and Technology Transfer
By leveraging philanthropic capital, the IRP provides support and technical assistance to island nations at no-cost to their governments.
Coordination mechanisms/governance structure
The IRP works directly with Palau's government, coordinating efforts with the Office of Climate Change and Ministry of Environment.
