St. Kitts and Nevis launches Green Climate Fund project

Saint Kitts and Nevis and the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) have launched a project aimed at “Enhancing Caribbean civil society’s access and readiness for climate finance”.

The project aims to build the capacity of civil society organisations (CSOs), including national nongovernmental organisations, community-based organisations and resource user groups such as farmer and fisherfolk associations and cooperatives, to access and deliver climate finance and build climate resilience in the Caribbean.

The project’s scope includes the CARICOM region, with targeted activities in Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia and Suriname.

The project is funded by a US$1.29 million grant from the Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).
