ROSEAU, Dominica – Several Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Caribbean region face the challenging task of complying with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
As countersigns to the United Nations SDGs, governments pledged to go on board with a standard procedure to achieve sustainable development within this time frame. And a number of SIDS in the region are well on track to reach the goal of creating broad, robust, and sustainable communities – one of which is the Commonwealth of Dominica.
In the 2022 Voluntary National Review, Dominica said they “recognize that development, underpinned by a resilience agenda, is key to sustainably uplifting Dominicans towards our shared vision for the future”.
After two catastrophic disasters in 2-15 and 2017, the government has committed to revolutionize the living conditions of the most vulnerable and provide sustainable solutions.
Behind the successful progresses is MMC Development Ltd., the developing arm of UAE-based firm Montreal Management Consultants founded by Anthony Haiden.
“Sustainability is our utmost priority for all the projects they embarked on,” said MMC Development, chief executive officer and president, Anthony Haiden.
Haiden noted that despite many challenges, they have delivered the project and have reaffirmed that MMC Development is always committed to comply with the government’s mandate to develop sustainably.
“Like previous housing projects completed by MMC Development, all structures will be climate-resilient but this time, it will be built by local contractors and workers”, added Haiden.
MMC Development has been at the forefront of numerous projects across Dominica from housing to healthcare to social and public infrastructures, as well as education and aviation.
Through the country’s Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP), many visionary developments aimed to improve the lives of every Dominican have turned into reality.
