Caribbean govts to fight climate change

GEORGETOWN, Jan. 03 (MNA) – Fight climate change is a priority of Caribbean governments in 2018, in a region struck by intensifying hurricanes, droughts and rising sea.

"The absolute necessity to create a climate smart Region is clear given the effects of climate change which have brought us droughts, mega hurricanes, heavy floods and unusual weather patterns, all of which adversely affect our development," stresses in a statement for the new year the incoming chairman of the Caribbean Community, Jovenel Moise.

Our efforts are against the backdrop of the Caribbean Community Strategic Plan for the period 2015-19, which is our guide towards the economic, social, environmental and technological resilience that is needed to produce sustained growth and development for our Community, adds Haiti President.

This year, we will increase our efforts to make the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME) more effective at providing the basis for our economic growth, Moises underlines in his message.
