Port of Spain, April 29, 2021 – The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) has endorsed the use of locally led adaption principles in supporting the most vulnerable communities to address climate change impacts, including in Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS), along with 50 other organisations globally.

As global leaders committed to ambitious targets to tackle the climate crisis at the Leaders Summit on Climate on April 22, it is more important than ever that communities on the frontline have a voice in the decisions to ensure just and equitable outcomes. The locally led adaptation principles were developed to help local communities have more input and access to resources to adapt and build their resilience to climate change.
