Caribbean delegates attend climate change Conference in Samoa
A delegation of climate change experts and policymakers from throughout the Caribbean region were in Samoa from 23 to 26 May 2011 to participate in a climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction conference. The aim of the conference was to share experiences and lessons learned in relation to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction among Small Island Developing States from the Caribbean, Pacific and Indian Ocean, drawing on experiences from Australia and elsewhere.
The Conference was co-hosted by Australia and the South Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP) and was funded by the Australian Government, through the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID).
One of the outcomes of the Conference was the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) and the SPREP to further strengthen collaborative efforts to address climate change.
Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) journalist, Ernie Seon, was in Samoa to cover the Conference. Follow the links below for his stories:
