The Government of Saint Kitts and Nevis – Department of Economic Affairs and Public Sector Investment Programme (PSIP) and the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) were pleased to announce the national launch of the project, “Enhancing Caribbean civil society’s access and readiness for climate finance”, on October 22, 2020 at the Innovation Hub, National ICT Centre in Saint Kitts.

The project aims to build the capacity of civil society, including national non-governmental organisations, community-based organisations and resource user groups such as farmer and fisherfolk associations and cooperatives, to access and deliver climate finance and build climate resilience in Saint Kitts and Nevis and the wider Caribbean.

It will enhance CSOs’ knowledge, skills and organisational structures, and strengthen institutional mechanisms to enhance civil society voice and participation in climate change decision-making nationally and regionally.
