The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) is a regional entity whose work is focused on small island developing States in the Caribbean and on improving the region’s framework for and activities that address climate change. Key activities that CCCCC engages in with its member states include raising awareness on climate change, building capacity to analyse climate change impacts across various sectors, and identifying adaptation and mitigation opportunities; developing and implementing mitigation and adaptation projects in the region; and providing policy advice and support during events such as the international climate change negotiations. CCCCC has built strong relationships with institutions across the region and internationally in order to deliver effective solutions and projects. Over the next five years, it will manage climate change projects and programmes in the region of almost US$ 50 million, including in areas that they already have experience in: early warning systems, water and energy security, agriculture and food security, resilient health-care facilities, climate-resilient buildings, and ecosystem-based adaptation. CCCCC sought accreditation to the GCF to undertake and scale up both mitigation and adaptation projects across the region in order to drive a paradigm shift in the region’s development patterns.
