GGGI Eastern Caribbean Planning Framework 2022-2026

At a Glance

The Caribbean Planning Framework (CPF) is a 5-year planning and engagement strategy that describes the strategic initiatives that the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) aims to pursue in the Eastern Caribbean region, in partnership with its member organization the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and OECS member states. The CPF is formulated based on the priorities expressed in key regional and national frameworks and policies and those of GGGI, as stated in the GGGI Strategy 2030.

To support the region’s overall goals to become more economically and environmentally resilient, GGGI plans to support the OECS Commission and its member states in achievement of the goals embodied the OECS Development Strategy (2019-2028), the OECS Regional Green-Blue Economy Strategy and Action Plan, the St. George’s Declaration of Principles for Environmental Sustainability, the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) of the independent member states of the OECS, and other relevant national-level goals.

In the Eastern Caribbean, GGGI will focus on four Programmatic Solutions as follows:

  • Delivering on climate action by enhancing the capacity of countries to fulfil their NDC commitments and adapt to climate change through policy and strategy development.
  • Facilitate mobilization of green investments to support climate mitigation and adaptation projects.
  • Create an enabling environment for the development and widespread adoption of solar PV and mobilize finance for project implementation.
  • Support the creation of green industries through green entrepreneurship and green technology development by building capacity and mobilizing finance for SMEs.

To achieve these goals, GGGI will work at both the regional and national level in the Eastern Caribbean. At a regional level, GGGI will work with the OECS Commission to develop and implement support programs that advance achievement of regional goals across multiple countries. At a national level, GGGI will engage with national governments directly to provide targeted solutions specific to their green growth agenda and goals.
