Reducing Risks, Vulnerabilities and Enhancing Resilience


Getting our trade, finance and investment governance structures fit for purpose within the context of 21st century trade is a prerequisite to regenerative development. Within the aftermath of recent climatic events in the Caribbean, these efforts assume an even greater importance, priority and urgency.

This meeting will focus on funding infrastructure, reducing vulnerabilities, and enhancing resilience, for Commonwealth Small States in the Caribbean, building on the outcomes from our 13th London 2017 consultative exercise[1] and working towards our preparatory processes, including addressing policy barriers, in view of the forthcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in 2018. It will focus specifically on citizenship by investment programmes and developing governance capabilities so as to enhance resilience and reduce risks and vulnerabilities.
