What is the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund ?

The Caribbean Biodiversity Fund was established in 2012 to create reliable, long-term funding for conservation and sustainable development in the Caribbean region. 

The Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) is a regional umbrella environmental fund that uses a flexible structure to implement innovative solutions and consolidate resource mobilization in the Caribbean through a range of financial instruments. 

Currently, the CBF has two programs: 

  1. the Conservation Finance Program, based on an endowment fund, and 
  2. the Climate Change Program, focused on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) strategies.

A Nature-based Solutions program will be added to the CBF portfolio by October 2022.

Caribbean Challenge Initiative

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.
