Regional Process of the Americas at the World Water Forum (2018): Sub-regional Report Caribbean

The Caribbean, together with other Small Island Developing States in the Pacific, Africa, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and South China Seas (AIMS), are among the countries most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. In recognition of this vulnerability, the heads of government of the CARICOM region in July 2009 approved a ‘Regional Framework for Achieving Development Resilient to a Changing Climate.’ An implementation plan for this regional framework was approved three years later, in 2012, by CARICOM heads in Suriname. This implementation plan identifies water as the most important cross-cutting issue for climate-compatible development in the region.
