The world’s first climate-smart zone?

A climate-smart zone modernizes digital, physical and social infrastructure to address the challenges of climate change, and secure a low carbon future for the region.

We’re shaping the Caribbean to be the world’s first climate-smart zone. The Accelerator is a not-for-profit organization building more resilient countries, cities and industries through private and public partnerships.

This is how we
take action

We work with Caribbean Governments to identify their climate-smart goals and where they need help meeting them. We then convene with climate-smart projects, organizations and suppliers to move these goals forward.

 

Our focus areas

Resilient Infrastructure & Smart Cities, Electric Vehicles, Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency, Oceans & Agriculture and Innovative Financing

Our projects fall under five pillars, each aiming to move the Caribbean into a climate-smart zone and ready us for inevitable environmental changes ahead.

...as a proud Jamaican I’m used to winning, so I’d appreciate it if we could be the first Caribbean country to get [climate-smart] so that we can keep the name of fastest Carribean Island…
