UNDP Donates Computer Equipment to Belize’s Department of Transport

Today, the Minister of Transport received a donation of computer equipment from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Resident Representative Ian King. The donation is valued at forty thousand dollars and was matched by another donation of the same amount to procure additional computer hardware and software for the Department of Transport. The donation facilitates the establishment of an electronic platform capable of monitoring bus fleet performance and enabling the transition to low-carbon transportation. The ministry says the contribution is provided in anticipation of the three electric buses whose operations will be piloted on the Philip Goldson and George Price highways corridors. Assessing the effectiveness of the deployed electric buses will guide future decisions on fleet expansion. It will also inform policy changes to enable effective public transport sector growth and management. The donation was funded by the European Union (EU) through a UNDP-administered pilot project entitled “Towards Low Carbon Transport Project.”
