Eastern Caribbean Climate Adaptation Enhancement Package (CAEP)

The Eastern Caribbean Climate Adaptation Enhancement Package (CAEP) is a programme aimed at increasing the region's resilience to the impacts of Climate Change. It is a joint initiative by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS).

Climate Adaptation Enhancement Package CAEP addresses the challenges of climate change through the National Development Contribution (NDC) Partnership (NDCP) as a consumer-driven and impact-oriented initiative to promptly support the enhancement and implementation of the NDCs, with and through a partnership with society and government. The Eastern Caribbean is a region that is highly vulnerable to the impacts of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, floods, and droughts. The project aims to strengthen the capacity of Caribbean countries to adapt to these impacts by promoting sustainable development practices and supporting the mainstreaming of climate change considerations into policy and planning.

The project comprises three main components.

  • The first component focuses on building the capacity of regional institutions to effectively manage climate change risks and adapt to the associated impacts.
  • The second component focuses on developing and implementing climate-resilient policies and plans at the national and regional levels.
  • The third component focuses on promoting green growth and sustainable livelihoods in the region supporting renewable energy and climate-smart agriculture.

CAEP will positively impact the region in a significant way, including enhanced resilience to climate change, reduced vulnerability to extreme weather events, improved natural resource management, and increased awareness and understanding of climate change among key stakeholders.

The Stakeholders of CAEP include ministries, universities, the private sector and civil society organisations.
