“Climate finance is particularly crucial for the Caribbean region due to its vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. Therefore, as both a Caribbean citizen and a professional, it is imperative that I contribute to helping countries adapt and build resilience. The CFAN Advisor role presents an opportunity to do just that, while also enhancing my capacity and assisting in institutional strengthening. Efforts to mobilize climate finance for the Caribbean region involve collaboration among governments, international organizations, development banks, civil society organizations, and the private sector. This collaboration ensures that financial resources are effectively channelled to where they are most needed, thereby generating the greatest impact in building resilience and promoting sustainable development.”
