Following up on the PAIRCC, and within the framework of the Paris Climate Agreement, Karayib Klima’s objective is to strengthen climate resilience in the Caribbean. Managed and implemented by UNITE Caribbean from 2020 to 2022, the project promotes regional cooperation and actively supports the creation of multi-country coalitions between Creole-speaking civil society organisations.
It aims to build capacity for actions and advocacy related to climate resilience in 7 Creole-speaking countries and territories in the Caribbean: Haiti, Dominica, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Sainte-Lucia and Saint-Martin.
To achieve this objective, CSOs are invited to submit projects until 13th December 2020 to develop activities in the related territories. In order to foster regional cooperation, the Karayib Klima call for proposals is reserved for CSOs coalitions of at least two organisations from two different Caribbean countries.
Within the framework of the call for proposals, Karayib Klima supports two types of actions:
- Concrete actions providing climate resilience solutions.
- Activities related to advocacy and public awareness campaigns.
The selected coalitions’ projects will be implemented between March 2021 and April 2022. UNITE Caribbean will play a key role in assisting in the development and implementation of projects throughout the duration of Karayib Klima.
Beyond the financial support, Karayib Klima also aims to perpetuating the dynamics of cooperation at the end of the project, within a structure or civil society cooperation mechanisms at the regional level.
