January 26, 2023

Caribbean governments and the United Nations have renewed their commitment to intensifying efforts to achieve the vision of the 2030 Agenda under the new UN Multi-Country Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework.

An inaugural meeting of the Sub-Regional Joint Steering Committee was successfully held at UN House, yesterday.

It was co-chaired by UN Resident Coordinator Didier Trebucq and Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office Senator Dr. Shantal Munro-Knight.

Mr. Trebucq said the first Steering Committee meeting was opportune for the sub-region since it allowed partners to come together after one year under the Cooperation Framework, to continue their partnership on the work started last year.

In her address Senator Dr. Munro-Knight noted the unprecedented challenges that faced the region over the past two to three years and underscored the importance of having partners like the UN system.
