In this episode, we’re going deeper on the issue of climate resilience. Climate change presents one of the most critical development challenges for the Caribbean which is already one of the most climate vulnerable regions in the world.
During CDB’s 51st Annual Meeting, a high-level panel of experts and leaders shared recommendations on how the Caribbean can continue to advance climate action even amidst a global economy radically reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion came during our seminar entitled ‘Climate Action in a Post-COVID-19 Environment’
