[MEDIA ALERT] Nationally Determined Contributions Finance Initiative (NDC FI) Plenary Meeting to be held in Saint Lucia

Press invitation

A Plenary Meeting for the Caribbean's Nationally Determined Contibutions Finance Initiative (NDC FI) will be held from July 3-4 at the Bay Gardens Hotel Saint Lucia. The media are invited to attend. 

WHAT
Under the Paris Climate Agreement adopted at COP21, countries agreed to contribute to the global climate effort and materialized their commitments through Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). The NDCs compile multiple goals and targets towards climate adaptation in areas such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, clean transportation, water, climate-smart agriculture and critical infrastructure.

The NDC Finance initiative (NDC FI) was launched in September 2017. This three-year process aims to catalyse regional NDC implementation by unlocking the investment opportunities in the various sectors, while supporting the transition to more resilient economies. 

Three working groups comprising governmental and institutional representatives has been established for each thematic area in order to support the work of the NDC FI. These groups play a critical role in elaborating the national and regional context for the NDC FI as well as in identifying priority issues and actions.

Back to www.oecs.int

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
