Creating the Caribbean
The Accelerator harnesses the capacity and development experience of Caribbean countries
and join it with world-class innovation and delivery capabilities.
Clearing impediments to implementation of climate-smart initiatives in the Caribbean region.
We raise awareness of the climate agenda and ensure that the Caribbean’s Small Island Developing States (SIDS) receive assistance to become more resilient.
We identify and package a pipeline of projects that are ready for immediate funding and implementation.
We monitor the implementation of activities to ensure solutions are more rapid, sustainable and deliver a higher positive impact.
Projects with positive, transformative potential across areas aligned with The Accelerator’s strategy of economic, social and environmental resilience, and climate mitigation & adaptation.
Low risk projects that have strong political will and sponsorship, local ownership where there are strong execution partners to implement.
Projects that have the potential to generate positive short term impact and deliver measurable results.
Our five primary pillars align with the aims and goals of achieving a climate-smart zone.
Reduce vulnerability to a range of climate-related hazards and natural disaster risks through building resilient infrastructure.
Reduce carbon emissions caused by vehicles, that are contributing to the overall carbon emission problem by increasing the number of electric powered vehicles.
Enhanced energy security via promotion of renewable energy & energy efficiency and use of low carbon sources.
Work toward healthy ecosystems on the sea and on land.
Utilizing innovative financing mechanisms which can blend funding from public, private and multilateral sources.
Here are a few of the many projects that we are currently collaborating to deliver across the region.
Donation from Zero Mass Water of 20 HydroPanels. The panels were installed at the children's ward at University Hospital of the West Indies and will generate free, clean drinking water for the next 15+ years.
Working in partnership with Ocean Unite to identify and execute projects to support the increased protection of Belize oceans and reefs, such as mangrove regeneration and increasing marine reserves.
Working in partnership with the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship, Kingston to progress Algas Organics, a regional start-up that is tackling the sargassum seaweed problem by turning it into fertilizer.
Led by The Nature Conservancy Facilitating debt-conversions that are partially financed with impact capital, to support marine conservation and climate change adaptation projects.
