Next week the heads of CARICOM States will be in Placencia where they will be engaged in discussions of several issues affecting the region. One of those issues is climate change and today the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre convened a meeting whereby stakeholders discussed the recently signed global agreement that was signed at the 21 conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris last December. Today’s meeting at the Best Western Biltmore Plaza was to review and analyze the outcomes of that conference. We spoke to Belize’s National Climate Change Coordinator Anne Gordon for more details.
The meeting continues tomorrow.
