By BBN Staff: Belize is among the nations that will benefit from a new climate finance project being piloted in Suriname by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI).
The project is aimed at improving access to climate financing for civil society groups such as farmer and fisherfolk associations and co-operatives, as well as increase the readiness of these groups to manage climate funding. CANARI’s project, which is funded by a US$1.29-million grant from the Readiness and Preparatory Support Programme of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), launched in Suriname last month in collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Spatial Planning and Environment in Suriname.
“Civil society in Suriname and the wider region is well-positioned to lead bottom-up approaches to tackle the climate crisis. However, current efforts are often small-scale and piecemeal as civil society lacks the necessary funding and technical assistance,” said CANARI Senior Technical Officer and Project Manager, Dr. Ainka Granderson.
According to the Jamaica Gleaner, the project goes up to August 2022 and also sees targeted activities in Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada, Jamaica, St Kitts and Nevis, and St. Lucia. Jamaica’s Climate Change Division, Ministry of Housing, Urban Renewal, Environment and Climate Change, is the lead authority on the project, with CANARI is serving as the implementing entity.
