Former Minister for the Public Service, Information, Broadcasting, Sustainable Development, Energy, Science and Technology in Saint Lucia

Under his leadership, the Caribbean’s ‘1.5 to Stay Alive’ climate change civil society campaign was developed. 

During his tenure as a minister, James Fletcher led an aggressive modernization of the energy
sector with new investments in renewable energy, the establishment of a new muti-sector
utility regulator, and the enactment of new energy legislation. He commissioned modern
information technology centres in several under-served communities around the island and
he started a program for free island-wide Wi-Fi (GI-Net). James Fletcher initiated major water
re-development projects in the south and east coasts and the desilting of the island’s major
reservoir. He developed a 311-call centre to provide the public with quicker and easier access
to the public service, and established an Employee Assistance Programme to provide free,
confidential counselling for public officers.

James Fletcher currently manages his own consulting company, SOLORICON. In 2020, he
launched The Caribbean Climate Justice Project, which is an initiative aimed at increasing civil
society awareness of the impacts of climate change and ensuring that there are appropriate
responses at the national, regional, and international levels to issues of climate justice and
just transitions. James Fletcher is currently the Chairman of the Executive Board of the
Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE).
