OECS Commission Hosts First Sub-Regional Dialogue in the Eastern Caribbean with the Green Climate Fund

OECS Media Release

The OECS Commission, in partnership with the Governments of Grenada and Antigua and Barbuda, and the Green Climate Fund (GCF) will host the first Sub-regional Structured Dialogue in the Eastern Caribbean in Grenada from April 24-26, 2017 under the theme “Accelerating Direct Access to Climate Finance in the Eastern Caribbean.”  

The dialogue will target several stakeholders in the region including: National Designated Authorities (NDAs) for the GCF and national climate change focal points, Ministries of Finance and Planning, climate change experts from civil society, potential accredited entities, implementing entities, and the private sector.

The overall objective of the meeting is to accelerate the Eastern Caribbean’s direct access to the GCF funding, in the context of the recently-adopted GCF Strategic Plan and GCF Board decisions that provide support for the development of concrete funding proposals and projects, as well as for readiness support and dedicated funding for National Adaptation Planning.

The dialogue is expected to produce concrete outcomes and recommendations that will contribute to the sustainable development of the sub-region and the wellbeing of its citizens.

An exhibition on Climate Resilient Initiatives will also run parallel to the meeting, starting from Tuesday April 25th 2017, which is open to schools and the general public.

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 ten 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 and Martinique.
