GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Dec 31 2015 (IPS) - Climate change is already affecting the Caribbean. But there is concern that a gap still exists between what the region’s leaders are saying about the issue and what residents believe.
This, along with the issue of funding to address the financial flows needed for adaptation and mitigation are among priority areas for the Caribbean post COP21.
Ambassador Irwin LaRocque, the Secretary General of CARICOM, a political and economic union comprising 15 small, developing, climate-vulnerable islands and low-lying nations, said there ought to be transparency in terms of the commitments countries make.
