The Caribbean region’s Small Island Developing States (SIDS) face considerable threats from climate change, and considerable costs to cope with and adapt to climate impacts that exceed their financial capacity.
The paper "Climate finance in the Caribbean region’s Small Island Developing States" analyses climate finance flows to Caribbean SIDS, using data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Development Assistance Committee’s Creditor Reporting System (CRS).
Overall, the data reveals some important patterns in the way climate finance is being allocated and used in the Caribbean and provides a basis for deeper assessment of how climate finance is working for the region’s small island states. Beyond this, it is important to further examine how climate finance is working on the ground, and what kinds of outcomes it is producing for Caribbean communities.
