The Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, widely known as the 5Cs, is a Centre of Excellence that thrives on coordination, collaboration and partnerships.
We’ve done pioneering work covering regionally relevant climate modelling and data collection, adaptation projects, climate risk management, education and outreach and coordinating Caribbean negotiating positions at international climate meetings. Over the last year we were involved in executing eight comprehensive projects spanning these areas. Our project portfolio includes:
Coastal Protection for Climate Adaptation in the Small Island States in the Caribbean – An Ecosystem-based Adaptation Project (2014-2018)
Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (2012-2016)
Caribbean Regional Resilience Development Implementation Plan (2011-2016)
Caribbean Risk Management Project (2012-2015)
Australia- Caribbean Collaboration on Climate Change and Coral Reefs (2012-2015)
Database Management System for a Regional Integrated Observing Network for Environmental Change in the wider Caribbean (2011-2015)
Global Climate Change Alliance (2011-2015)
Did you know that a demand-driven Climate Support Facility (CSF) was developed under the European Union-funded Intra-ACP Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) programme in June 2012?
The request must be made by an institution based in an ACP country (African, Caribbean and Pacific group of states). However there is no restriction regarding the legal status of the institution (public, private, university, NGOs, association, etc…).
The assistance requested must fall within at least one of the 5 GCCA priorities :
- Clean Development Mechanisms (CDM)
- Reduction of Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+)
- Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR)
The CSF does not provide financial support, but covers all the expenses related to the assistance it provides (experts fees, international travel of the experts, possibility of budget for local travels, possibility of budget for workshop or training venue/material/catering).
The assistance provided is punctual. There is no exact limit regarding the duration of the mission, but beneficiaries are expected to have the resources to take over the outputs of our mission and integrate them in a larger project/programme.
For more information:
The request can be made at any time and the resulting mission can be implemented relatively quickly. To submit a proposal you can either use the online request form or contact Dr Pendo Maro, the ACP Secretariat’s Climate Change expert, at firstname.lastname@example.org or +32 495 28 14 94.
