Port of Spain, March 26, 2021 – Caribbean civil society can play a key role in delivering climate finance and building local resilience, and there needs to be greater investment to support this role alongside governments and the private sector.

This was the key message from the virtual regional dialogue, “Delivering Caribbean Climate Ambitions: Climate Finance, Civil Society and Partnerships”, held from March 16-18, 2021. It was attended by over 200 participants, including leading regional and national civil society organisations (CSOs), national authorities, regional agencies, funders and international partners.

Key themes explored over the three days included options for accessing climate finance with a focus on civil society’s role and capacity, expanding multi-stakeholder engagement in climate change decision-making, and leveraging partnerships to realise climate ambitions.
