summary high level panel caribbean green alliance resilience

On the 15th of December 2020, the High-level Panel on Green Alliance underlined the commitment of Caribbean states and the European Union (EU) to ambitious global climate action. Co-hosted by the German Federal Foreign Office and the European Commission, it demonstrated that action on climate change mitigation and resilience to climate-fragility risks will be core pillars for the future partnership between the two regions.

Panellists made a strong call for addressing the technical and financing challenges of implementing mitigation and adaptation strategies. Eighty participants from around the world tuned in to follow the panel.

The panel discussed:

  • Critical security risks related to climate change in the Caribbean region;
  • Good practices and entry points for the Caribbean-EU partnership to address climate risks and meet climate targets at a local, regional and international level;
  • Areas of cooperation between the EU, its member states and the Caribbean states that would bring the most added value and impact on climate action and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) implementation.
