The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) is pleased to share its technical report: “Planning for an inclusive, environmentally sustainable and climate resilient COVID-19 recovery within the Caribbean region: Progress and opportunities"
Click here to download: https://t.ly/ykrTh

This report presents findings from research conducted by CANARI on 412 public sector COVID-19 recovery initiatives within the Caribbean region – covering initiatives within six countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago) as well as regional initiatives – and mapping where these initiatives align with four principles:
1️⃣ transforming economic governance;
2️⃣ supporting fairness, inclusion and justice in economic development;
3️⃣ supporting environmental sustainability while recognising and managing trade-offs; and
4️⃣ enabling a low-carbon transition and building resilience to address multiple risks.
Together these four principles, and their 18 indicators, were used as an analytical framework to assess to what extent Caribbean COVID-19 recovery initiatives would contribute to transformation to more environmentally sustainable, inclusive, fair and resilient economic development in the Caribbean.
