Webinar: Mobilising Renewable Energy Investments in Climate in the Caribbean

Webinar: Mobilising Renewable Energy Investments in Climate in the Caribbean

Invitation to participate on Thursday, 25 June!

As part of the OECS Environmental Webinar Series, the Caribbean NDC Finance Initiative (NDCFI) will host a webinar on Mobilising Renewable Energy Investments in Climate in the Caribbean on Thursday, 25 June 2020.

The Caribbean is responding to the ambitious challenges of international agreements and the urgent demand for investment in resilient low-carbon economies. There is a need to effectively harness international climate finance and mobilise private capital for climate investment to implement and accelerate commitments under the nationally determined contributions (NDCs) that are at the heart of the Paris Climate Agreement.

Climate change severely threatens energy security, which remains a cornerstone of modern economies. The resilience of energy systems is more essential than ever, especially for island states. Transitions to renewable energy can be a direct response to climate change mitigation and a sustainable basis for long-term investments.

Social distancing circumstances require resilience and innovative solutions to mitigate impact on event organisation. Considering the Covid-19 pandemic, the planned Climate Finance Week for the Caribbean and Central America was postponed. Consequently, the NDC Finance Initiative (NDCFI) and GET.invest are holding a virtual event combined with a B2B session, bringing a multitude of actors together in order to mobilise renewable energy investments in Climate in the Caribbean region. While this is not intended to replace the much larger and broader event postponed to the second half of 2020, this intermediate event will offer stakeholders an opportunity to meet and exchange virtually during the pandemic.

Webinar Objectives

Join us on 25 June 2020 from 9-12:30am AST to explore and better understand:

  • the economic and environmental challenges of the Caribbean;

  • opportunities to connect with potential business partners, investors and policymakers during a dedicated virtual matchmaking session.

About The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States

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.
