The Caribbean Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR) is a climate change adaptation initiative of the global PPCR supported by the Climate Investment Funds. The Caribbean PPCR has two complementary tracks. The first track consists of country based investments in six vulnerable countries and the second is a regional track involving regional organizations working in the Caribbean in key sectors.
1. To improve regional processes to acquire, store, analyse access and disseminate climate relevant data
2. To pilot and scale up innovative climate resilient initiatives in the region
The Regional Track of the PPCR in the Caribbean is coordinated by a Programme Management Unit at the University of the West Indies’ Mona Office for Research and Innovation (UWI MORI) in Jamaica. The programme is supported by the Inter-American Development Bank which has provided USD1O.39 million in grant funding for the regional track. Activities under the program commenced in 2015 and will continue until 2020.
