Background Information

The Caribbean Development Roundtable brings together regional and international development thinkers and practitioners, leaders and senior policymakers from ECLAC member States and associate member countries, representatives of the UN System, regional and international financial institutions, academia, and civil society, including the private sector, as well as other development partners to explore new and innovative approaches to the challenges of small developing States’ sustainable development efforts.

This year, in the wake of COVID-19 which served to exacerbate the debt and vulnerability challenges facing the subregion, the Caribbean Development Roundtable turns the spotlight on recovery and repositioning, and, through panel discussions and dialogue among policymakers and key stakeholders, will explore practical and workable solutions to invest in resilience, economic recovery and sustained growth. The Roundtable will also be updated on the progress being made towards the establishment of the Caribbean Resilience Fund, a mechanism intended to leverage development financing for the Caribbean, thereby promoting resilience building and the structural transformation of Caribbean economies.
