The Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) has embarked on a new initiative under its Water, Climate and Development Programme (WACDEP) called “Climate-Proofing Water Investment in the Caribbean” which is being executed in partnership with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC).
The initiative includes the development of a Caribbean Climate Resilience and Water Security Investment Plan (CCReWSIP) which aims to provide a coordinated and programmatic approach to identifying, prioritising and sourcing finance for actions to enhance the climate resilience of the Caribbean through improved water resources management.
The project is being funded by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and falls within one of the key components of the GWP-C WACDEP which recognises the need to prioritise water investments which perform well under a full range of climate scenarios.
Also crucial to the GWP-C WACDEP is its emphasis on no/low regret investment options given climate uncertainties. Once completed, the implementation of the actions in the Investment Plan and its periodic revision will be an ongoing process supported by GWP-C and the CCCCC.
