The Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator (CCSA)

The Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator is leadership by example.

We modernize digital, physical, and social infrastructure using transformational approaches to address the challenges of climate change securing a low-carbon future.

We are a living lab pioneering new sources of energy, new ways of doing business, new financing instruments and insurance products, and new climate-smart cities and coastal communities.

Working with partners, our climate-smart zone serves as a region of hope and inspires the global community to follow suit.
