Earl Jarrett, Chief Executive Officer of JN Group, has suggested that the government look at implementing a policy that reduces duties on imported water efficient technologies - stating that this will encourage demand for such facilities.

He says the likely results will be reduced water demand and conservation which will strengthen the country’s resilience to the effects of climate change.
Jarrett made the suggestion on Friday while addressing a meeting to sign a loan agreement with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
This will result in the multilateral institution channelling US$5.75 million in loan funding, through JN Bank, to finance housing developers to integrate water efficiency technologies in new projects.
