Several members of the Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator (CCSA) will be participating at the Caribbean Renewable Energy Forum (CREF) this week in Miami along with stakeholders from 28 Countries across the Caribbean, Central & Latin America. The CCSA’s CEO & UNFCCC Global Ambassador, Racquel Moses; Director of Public Sector Projects Keisha Farnum; Director Finance Innovation Cheryl Senhouse, and Digital Impact Strategist Gynelle Findlay are on the ground at CREF and will be networking with major regional stakeholders.
Mrs Moses is the CREF Master of Ceremonies and will deliver the welcome address to attendees, participate in a live Q&A as well as moderate a panel titled “Policy-Makers Panel: Time for Action” featuring :
- Joseph Cox, CARICOM Secretariat, Assistant Secretary-General
- Hon. Dr. Vince Henderson, Commonwealth of Dominica, Minister for Planning, Economic Development, Climate Resilience, Sustainable Development, and Renewable Energy
- Hon. Walter Roban, JP, MP, Government of Bermuda, Deputy Premier and Minister of Home Affairs
- Hon. Chris Saunders, MP, Cayman Islands, Deputy Premier, Minister for Finance and Economic Development, and Minister for Employment and Border Control
This 14th iteration of the Forum will focus on inspiring action and promoting clean energy opportunities in the Caribbean. Set to unite policymakers, regulators, investors and developers, CREF 2022 has set out a goal for this event to find the solutions needed to push the energy transition over the finish line. Development of new energy technologies such as Green Hydrogen, the implementation of electric mobility programs, as well as the finance needed to unlock these projects are just some of the key topics to be broached.
Keen on promoting the thriving sustainable development ecosystem in the region, the CCSA team will be seeking to secure support and funding for Caribbean projects. In order for the Caribbean to become the world’s first Climate-Smart zone, communities must build their resilience through renewable energy that maximizes the opportunities provided by local environments. The discussions held at CREF 2022 will help Caribbean nations and territories to maintain their position as global leaders in sustainable development, and enable the CCSA to find new opportunities to support a low-carbon future for the region.
