(Barbados Government Information Service Press Release) Barbados has signed the new United Nations Multi-Country Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for the English and Dutch-speaking Caribbean, which will cover the period 2022-2026.

Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley and United Nations Resident Coordinator, Didier Trebucq, signed the document on Friday, during a brief hybrid ceremony at Ilaro Court.

And, Ms. Mottley underscored the importance of the Framework, saying that having a common agenda was absolutely critical to saving the world and putting it on the right path.

The Prime Minister continued: “We are here, not to be bureaucratic, not to be esoteric, … but in fact, to go to the heart of what we are facing as developing nations and small island developing states and put in place the mechanisms.

“We recognise that one of the deficiencies of small island developing states is the absence of capacity, …because it is the same people who are fighting the battles on all of these fronts…who have to craft the policies with respect to dealing and fighting inequity.”
