Caribbean Countries among those benefitting from UN SDG Financing

Barbados, Grenada and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, have been awarded a USD$1 million Joint SDG Fund Grant after successfully submitting a proposal for a joint programme entitled ‘Harnessing Blue Economy Finance for SIDS Recovery and Sustainable Development’.

That funding is part of a historic United Nations Joint SDG Fund US$60 million grant launched to close the SDG financing gap and foster more inclusive, sustainable and resilient countries across the world.

The funding will support the efforts of the three participating Eastern Caribbean governments to develop financing strategies in the Blue Economy and create an enabling framework for SDG investment.

The successful proposal from the three Caribbean Governments was among 62 joint programmes selected from 258 submissions supporting interventions in over 100 countries.
