Prime Minister Andrew Holness has welcomed the launch of the Infrastructure for Resilient Island States facility, which will provide critical support to small island developing states in building the capacity to recover quickly from climate crises.

The facility will support small island states to develop infrastructure that can withstand climate shocks, protecting lives and livelihoods.

“As we all know, a single disaster can derail the entire budget of a small island and set its economy back by years, reducing fiscal space to finance climate adaptation and resilience efforts,” Holness said.
