ABOUT The Accelerator
The Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator brings together an unprecedented group of leaders to implement transformative climate action. Featured as the first high-level commitment coming out of President Macron’s One Planet Summit, Prime Ministers Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica, Keith Mitchell of Grenada, Allen Chastanet of Saint Lucia, and Virgin Group Founder Sir Richard Branson articulated a far-reaching vision for the world’s first climate-smart zone.
Twenty-seven Caribbean government heads and some of the largest global companies, financial institutions, and foundations have joined the Accelerator to help the Caribbean become a beacon of climate-smart development through pioneering resilience and growth initiatives.
The Accelerator will harness the capacity and development experience of Caribbean countries and join it with world-class innovation and delivery capabilities. It will not duplicate existing efforts; it will serve Caribbean countries and regional entities, multi-lateral institutions, the private sector, and other partners to catalyse commercial and philanthropic resilience-building investments and partnerships.
