Opening Session; Finance for Climate Justice with a Caribbean Spotlight

Friday, October 28, 2022

The USAID Eastern and Southern Caribbean Mission presents Finance for Climate Justice: Caribbean Spotlight. The purpose of the session is to discuss international climate financial flows from the prism of climate justice; examining how particular features perpetuate and exacerbate inequalities between countries with a special focus on the Caribbean. The discussion will also explore how to marshal the resources and build the systems needed to address climate change impacts in the locations where they will be felt most acutely, and particularly for vulnerable and marginalized groups.
