Building Climate Resilience in the Caribbean

The story of collaborative climate action in the Caribbean (2007-2015).



Natural disasters and climate change impacts are felt frequently in the Caribbean region, which is composed of a number of small island states. As a joint response, the Governments of fifteen Caribbean nations initiated the development of a strategic framework for achieving sustainable development resilient to climate change in 2009. After a period of comprehensive participatory planning, their shared strategic framework resulted in a series of coordinated projects, in improved alignment of national strategies and in additional donor funding.
