Barbados' Minister of Foreign Affairs & UNDP Representative Exchange on Climate, Finance & Development
The 2017-2021 United Nations Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework (UN MSDF) defines how the Agencies, Funds, and Programmes of the UN will pool their comparative advantages within a single strategic framework that aligns with and supports the overarching strategic goals of the Caribbean’s governments and key stakeholders.
The Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), was created in 1981, under the Treaty of Basseterre. The OECS Member States are: Anguilla; Antigua and Barbuda; the British Virgin Islands; the Commonwealth of Dominica; Grenada; Montserrat; Saint Lucia; St. Christopher (St. Kitts) and Nevis; and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The main organ of the OECS, the OECS Secretariat is located in Castries, Saint Lucia. The majority of the Member States share one currency, the Eastern Caribbean currency.
UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life of everyone. We are on the ground in around 170 countries, to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
Within our multi-country context, UNDP Barbados and the OECS aims to create an enabling environment where our national governments have the capacities for inclusive and sustainable human development; meet their regional commitments, and internationally agreed goals including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Operating in a context where five out of ten (10) countries are considered Net Contributor Countries (NCC), UNDP focuses on policy and knowledge advisory services that facilitate poverty reduction, improved democratic governance, sound environmental management, climate resilience, options for sustainable energy and building resilience to natural and man-made hazards.
