Less Talk, More Action On Climate Change Issues

Prime Minister of Barbados, the Hon Mia Mottley

(Barbados Government Information Service Press Release) Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has reiterated the urgency for less talk and more action in confronting the debilitating effects of climate change on vulnerable countries.

Ms. Mottley recently made a strident call to action in tackling climate change issues before world leaders during her recent presentation at the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP 27) Climate Change Conference in Cairo, Egypt,

She proposed the establishment of a climate mitigation trust that would unlock five trillion [dollars] of private sector funding, badly needed to assist the Caribbean in its climate mitigation efforts. 

Ms. Mottley said: “We have come here to ask us to open our minds to different possibilities.  We believe that we have a plan. We believe that there can be the establishment of a climate mitigation trust that unlocks $5 trillion of private sector savings if we can summon the will to use $500 billion of Special Drawing Rights in a way that unlocks private sector capital.”
