UN in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean launches 2022 Annual Results Report
The newly published UN in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean 2022 Annual Results Report on the progress made during the first year of the Multicountry Sustainable Development Framework (2022 - 2026) gives an overview of the collective actions of the 22 UN entities operating in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. This Report not only highlights the key results, challenges and progress made, but also the resilience and indomitable spirit of the Governments and people of the 10 Caribbean countries that the UN in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean serve, and support in the rebuilding process. While Caribbean leaders must be highly commended for their efforts to combat the residual impacts of the global pandemic with limited resources, recovery during the past year has been impeded by ongoing and emerging threats. These include the debt crisis, climate change, rising unemployment, and the triple crisis of food, climate, and finance, which have worsened inequality, and seemingly placed the global goals even further out of reach. In response, the UN Team in Barbados, and the Eastern Caribbean, has redoubled its efforts to leave no one behind. Through joint action, innovative partnerships and leveraging regional cooperation, the team has scaled up social protection, extended its footprint in the region, and expanded finance mechanisms to improve the futures of the men, women, and children who call the Caribbean home.
