The Caribbean Readiness Programme

The project supports national climate finance institutions tasked with accessing the Green Climate Fund (GCF) under the Fund’s direct access modality and provides strategic and conceptual support for developing national climate change strategies. In partnership with the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ), Climate Analytics provides both assessment and analysis of climate finance readiness needs and gaps in the Caribbean region. Additionally, activities are implemented to address these issues in the short-medium term, including assisting national and regional entities to gain accreditation
to the GCF and Adaptation Fund (AF).

For the launch of the programme, Climate Analytics provided conceptual and organisational support to an initial regional readiness workshop held
in Barbados on 15–16 July 2013, bringing together high-level policy-makers, representatives of donor countries and stakeholders from civil society in the region.
