Socio-economic and Financial Implications Assessment of Climate Change on Jamaica


Commonwealth Secretariat


The Nationally Determined Contributions Partnership (NDCP) assists countries committed to implementing NDCs and the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Through its Climate Action Enhancement Program (CAEP), the NDCP helps countries fast-track climate and development activities.

The Government of Jamaica approached the NDCP CAEP to support its work on understanding the “Socio-economic and financial implications (past and projected) of climate change (including severe weather events/cyclones/drought) in Jamaica through the development of climate expenditure and institutional analyses and modelling”. In response to this request from the Jamaican government, the Commonwealth Secretariat agreed to support this request through its Commonwealth Climate Finance Access Hub (CCFAH). The CCFAH is a mechanism used by the Commonwealth Secretariat to support member countries in building their capacities to address climate change, meet their sustainable development goals, and assist in accessing climate finance.
