The Caribbean faces numerous economic, social and environmental challenges, with current projections predicting the road ahead to be filled with low levels of growth, high debt and low resilience.

In Achieving a Resilient Future for Small States: Caribbean 2050, the contributors set out a long-term, research-based strategy for avoiding these projections, recommending a number of policy interventions aimed at building the region’s resilience and development prospects.

Written by influential analysts and researchers and drawing on a wide cross-section of regional stakeholders and thought leaders, the study contains an assessment of the main challenges and opportunities for the region, scenario modelling of where the region could be by 2050, and a broad vision for the region with sector specific goals of how to get there.



The Road to 2050: the Caribbean We Want

The pathways presented in chapter 3 provide the Caribbean with a range of possible futures: a ‘business-as-usual’, a best-case and a worst-case scenario. The most compelling and appealing of the three clearly points to the implementation of strategies that will lead to the best-case scenario. Consistent with such a strategy is a vision for the Caribbean as peaceful, prosperous and inclusive; where its people are creative, enterprising and resilient, fully engaged in, and benefiting from, development within the framework of effective institutions that guarantee human rights and social justice.
