Barbados is currently finalising its climate action plan.
Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Ryan Straughn, provided the update during the first meeting of the European Union, and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States Ministers of Finance, who met recently in Spain. The topics discussed included the green transition, digital transformation and human development.
He revealed that Barbados is working with the International Monetary Fund, along with other multilateral banks, to see how they can support its response to the climate crisis. Minister Straughn is also pushing for direct people-to-people linkages in Latin America and the Caribbean for countries seeking to take advantage of opportunities available in the European Union.
