Investing in a Resilient Future for the Caribbean

Investing in a Resilient Future for the Caribbean

Catalysing Private Investment in PPPs & Low Carbon, Resilient, and Inclusive Infrastructure

Approximately 400 public and private representatives interested in sustainable infrastructure policies and investment in the Caribbean region gathered virtually on January 28, 2021 to discuss the challenges and unique opportunities to scale private investment in low-carbon, resilient, and inclusive infrastructure in the region.

The half-day webinar, Investing in a Resilient Future for the Caribbean: Catalyzing Private Investment in PPPs & Low Carbon, Resilient, and Inclusive Infrastructure, featured dynamic discussions with a wide spectrum of regional and international experts.

The main objectives were to:

  • generate awareness of opportunities in the Caribbean through in-country examples of successful infrastructure Public-Private Partnerships;
  • showcase innovative finance solutions that can play a catalytic role in scaling private sector infrastructure investment in the Caribbean;
  • promote a pipeline of current infrastructure investment opportunities in the Caribbean; and
  • highlight work of regional and multilateral development banks active in the region.

OECS Director General Dr. Didacus Jules participated in the discussions, framing the OECS’ role in identifying and reacting to the multidimensional challenges affecting the small island developing states (SIDS) of the region during this time of COVID-19.

Participation included members of government, representatives from the private sector, and the regional and multilateral development banks from the Caribbean States, Canada, Latin America, the United States, as well as Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. 

The webinar's organising partners were: the Canadian Council for Public Private Partnerships (CCPPP), Caribbean Development Bank (CDB), Global Affairs Canada (GAC), Global Infrastructure Facility (GIF), Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), IDB Invest, International Finance Corporation (IFC), and World Bank (WB).

Back to

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
