(Caribbean Community Climate Change Center) Executive Director of the Caribbean Community Climate Change Center (CCCCC), Dr. Collin Young is optimistic that Caribbean countries “would do more to enhance their nationally determined contributions (NDCs)” to the Paris Agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, signed in 2016.

Dr. Young told reporters during a virtual press brief last week Wednesday to mark the closure of the CCCCC Climate Change Adaptation Programme (USAID/CCAP), which commence in July 2016 that regional countries along with the rest of the world are in the process of enhancing their nationally determined contributions to the Paris agreement.

“…We do know that the pledges that were made are not significant enough to keep global temperatures at 1.5 or below 2 degrees Celsius and as a result we are hoping that countries will have greater ambition and submit their enhanced nationally determined contributions that outlines adaptation and mitigation efforts that they are willing to undertake to improve climate resilience adaptation and mitigation,” he said.
