Antigua To Host Important Biodiversity Meeting


The fourth joint annual Caribbean Challenge Initiative (CCI) and the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) meeting, known as the CCI-CBF Week, will take place at the Jolly Beach Resort in Bolans, Antigua from June 16 – 20, 2019.

Over 50 regional and international environmental stakeholders will travel to Antigua for the workshop to include CCI and CBF members, National Conservation Trust Funds (NCTFs) from the Caribbean, partners, donors, and observers. The participants will discuss the progress achieved by the region towards the two CCI goals: the protection and effective management of 20% of the marine and coastal environment (Goal 1) and the sustainable financing needed for this (Goal 2).


The Caribean Challenge Initiative (CCI) is an international commitment launched in 2008 at the Conference of the parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP-9).


The Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) was established in September 2012 as a regional environmental fund whose objective is to provide a sustainable flow of resources to support activities that contribute substantially to the conservation, protection, and maintenance of biodiversity in the Caribbean.
