The CCRIF Strategic Plan 2018 – 2021 is being implemented during a period in which CARICOM has declared its bold ambition to make the Caribbean the first climate-resilient zone in the world. CCRIF wishes to play its part in helping our region realize this stated ambition. Thus, as CCRIF enters its second decade of operations, additional financing and capital injection will be required to support growth and to facilitate scaling up – that is increasing coverage levels amongst existing members, adding new members and offering new products.
This report will highlight CCRIF SPC’s main accomplishments and activities during the 2018/19 policy year. This was the first year covered by our new Strategic Plan 2018-21, which reflects the objectives which emerged from consensus of our members and our regional and international partners. This report will present not only CCRIF’s activities and accomplishments but also their contribution to the seven strategic objectives established for 2018-2021.
