What is the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund ?

Established in 2012, the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) is the realization of a bold vision to create reliable, long-term funding for conservation and sustainable development in the Caribbean region. The CBF and a group of National Conservation Trust Funds (NCTFs) together form the Caribbean Sustainable Finance Architecture.

Working as an umbrella fund with a flexible structure to implement innovative solutions for resource mobilization at the regional level, the CBF currently has two programs:

  • Conservation Finance Program, anchored by a US$75 million endowment fund;
  • Climate Change Program, anchored by a US$27 million sinking fund focused on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA).

Caribbean Challenge Initiative

Background:
For the first time in history, visionary leaders of Caribbean governments have come together with responsible business leaders to take collaborative action to protect and sustainably manage their marine and coastal environment. A growing number of partners—such as funders and non-governmental organizations—are rallying around this effort, providing financial, technical, and other support.

CCI Logo

This ambitious and collaborative effort is known as the Caribbean Challenge Initiative (CCI). At the heart of this Initiative are two overarching, time-bound '20 by 20' goals.

  1. '20-BY-20' GOAL To effectively conserve and manage at least 20 percent of the marine and coastal environment by 2020.
  2. SUSTAINABLE FINANCE GOAL To achieve the '20 by 20' Goal, to have in place fully functioning sustainable finance mechanisms that will provide long-term and reliable funding to conserve and sustainably manage the marine and coastal resources and the environment in each participating country and territory.

Many of the governments involved in the CCI are also CBF Participating Countries. Therefore, the funding channeled from the CBF to the NCTFs each year will help the CCI reach its ’20 by 20’ goals through on-the-ground projects.
