The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has agreed to donate two solar-powered desalination plants to the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis as part of their UAE-Caribbean Renewable Energy Fund (UAE-CREF).

The Fund is a 50 million dollar plan to build climate-resilient renewable energy projects in 16 Caribbean nations.

During an interview with the Water Manager at St. Kitts and Nevis Water Services Department on March 16, Cromwell Williams stated that “The Government of St. Kitts and Nevis accepted the desalination plants because it represents a source of additional potable water for which there is always a need.”
