South-South Cooperation Experience

From 2016 to 2017, the Department of Environment in Antigua and Barbuda has provided technical support to the Internal Audit Unit, the Audit Department, the Ministry of Finance locally, and to climate change focal points in the Eastern Caribbean, on complying with multilateral funds and international best practices, on managing grant funds, concessional micro-financing loans, and applying for accreditation to the Adaptation Fund and the Green Climate Fund.

The Department of Environment also co-hosted the sub-regional dialogue with finance and climate change focal points in the Eastern Caribbean in April 2017, aiming to transfer best practices and lessons learned, and building practitioner networks.
