The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Member States, are among the first small island developing states (SIDS) to be affected by climate change. Each of the Member States emits less than 1% of global greenhouse gas emissions. However, they are confronted with this global negative externality. After more than two decades of negotiations, in 2015, the international community agreed upon a new international treaty to address climate change: the Paris Agreement. A notable achievement of the Paris Climate Agreement is that it encourages climate change mitigation action in both developed and developing countries.Since the Paris Climate Agreement marks an important milestone in the international climate change negotiations, this book seeks to explore the policy climate change action which can be implemented by the CARICOM Member States to build their resilience in the post-Paris Climate Agreement Era.This books considers climate change issues facing the CARICOM Member States such as the National Determined Contributions (NDC) framework, the urgency for climate finance to facilitate the coastal adaptation to climate change, the need for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to simplify and standardise the financing framework for its various trust funds, and the moral obligation of the international community to develop a financial mechanism to address loss and damage from climate change.
