Accelerating direct access to climate finance in the Eastern Caribbean

GCF Caribbean Structured Dialogues GCF Caribbean

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission, the Government of Grenada and the Government of Antigua and Barbuda hosted the First Structured Dialogue of the Green Climate Fund. 

The meeting targeted National Designated Authorities (NDAs) and National Focal Points, Ministries of budget, planning and finance, UNFCCC National Focal Points, climate change experts from civil society, potential accredited entities, implementing entities, the private sector, and other stakeholders.

This meeting provided key information that created the platform upon which the OECS Council of Ministers for Environmental Sustainability (COMES) was launched.

The main objectives were to:

  •  Better understand the GCF, its funding windows and the status of access in the Eastern Caribbean; 
  • Present an Accreditation strategy for the Eastern Caribbean in the context of existing governance and institutions; 
  • Develop a regional program with priority projects and programs to transition the Eastern Caribbean towards transformational low carbon climate resilient development; and 
  • Develop a roadmap and action plan for accreditation of national and sub-regional Direct Access Accredited Entities within the OECS.
