CBF Annual Meeting coming soon with CCI-CBF Week


The CCI-CBF Week is here once again! The meeting will take place from June 19th- 21st 2018 at the Sonesta Coconut Grove Hotel in Miami, USA. As in previous years, the meeting will include the CBF Annual Meeting, and a knowledge exchange among the NCTFs. In addition, and in response to the CCI Leader’s Declaration, the meeting will include a Finance Solutions Roundtable to discuss and brainstorm on new ideas and innovative approaches for supporting the Caribbean Sustainable Financial Architecture and overall CCI Goals.

We expect to bring a wide array of stakeholders including, CBF Board of Directors, CCI stakeholders, National Conservation Trust Funds (NCTFs), Donors, Partners and others.

The CBF Annual Meeting will be held on June 20, 2018. We will have 3 new Directors to the CBF Board to introduce and an update on both CBF Programmes – the Endowment (supporting the NCTFs) and the first official update on the new EbA Facility (supporting sub-regional Climate Change adaptation activities) will be provided.

Invitees will soon receive information with details on the event, agenda, and registration. We look forward to welcoming and registering other partners and friends for the meeting.
