The Climate Change Division (CCD) of the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation is hosting a series of workshops to address climate finance, from June 20 to 24 at Hotel Four Seasons, in Kingston.

These workshops are intended to increase knowledge about, and access to international climate finance.

The overall objective is to support the implementation of measures that lead to more climate resilience and lower emission in Jamaica.

Communication Consultant at the Division, Carl Campbell, explained that the sessions will engage both the private and public sectors, with the first two days targeted at government ministries, departments and agencies.

On June 20 and 21, representatives of government entities will be introduced to international climate finance options and conditions for accessing them, and facilities for further discussions on policy and institutional requirements, he noted.

The workshops on June 22 and 23 are primarily for organisations that are interested in becoming national implementing entities and accessing funding from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) for climate readiness financing and financing for qualified climate change adaptation and mitigation projects.

On Friday June 24, the CCD and the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica will host a breakfast and workshop with leaders and heads of entities within the private sector to acquaint them with the workings of international climate financing.
