Many countries are in the early stages of conceptualizing
a strategy for SDG implementation. Therefore, the
importance of national mainstreaming of the SDGs is
critical to have national ownership of the 2030 Agenda.
As Governments undertake to mainstream the SDGs in
their national development plans, it is important to ensure
that national, subnational and subregional indicators,
as well as data collection and reporting arrangements
are designed and implemented in a way that will enable
globally comparable and standardized statistics to be
compiled by the National Statistical Systems (NSS) of
Caribbean countries. For example, the crucial role of
national institutional infrastructure to drive the SDGs must
be emphasized. In addition, the importance of quality,
timely and disaggregated data must be recognized and
the capacity needed to collect, analyse and report data and
statistics must be put in place.

Most small island developing States (SIDS) are net
energy importers and utilize mainly fossil energy
sources to drive their economies and meet social
needs. Fossil energy is used primarily for power
generation and domestic transportation. In light of
the global challenges that arise from climate change,
many countries have initiated strategies and projects
for deploying renewable energy technologies, as
well as enhancing energy efficiency (EE). In 2016,
the International Monitory Fund (IMF) estimated that
transportation accounted for 36 per cent of the total
primary energy consumed in the Caribbean subregion.
This information highlights the importance of increasing
energy efficiency in the transportation sector as one
of several strategies to improve sustainability. To date
however, efforts to transition to renewable energy (RE)
and to enhance EE in domestic transportation systems
remain very limited.

A daunting challenge faced by financial institutions
in the Caribbean in recent years is the growing trend
being adopted by large global banks that serve as
correspondent banks to local financial institutions, to
severely limit or terminate their correspondent banking
relationships (CBRs) with these local or regional banks
(respondent banks). This practice is considered a form
of “de-risking”, whereby business relationships with
clients or categories of clients considered “high-risk”
are restricted or terminated. So far, financial institutions
in 12 Caribbean countries have had the CBRs of at least
one of their local banks terminated or “de-risked”.
