ECLAC opened a Public Consultation to identify water priorities of Caribbean countries, towards of the 2023 United Nations Water Conference

19 August 2022|Briefing note

ECLAC is interested in compiling points of view, experiences and proposals from Caribbean countries regarding their main challenges. Caribbean states are highly vulnerably due to the financial indebtedness and climate change and must receive adequate support, including through concessional funding and reestablishment of the liquidity they need. Thus, ECLAC wants to highlight the importance of these countries and focus its activities around the concept of “Caribbean first”.

In these lines, the Natural Resources Division at ECLAC is gathering the opinion of Caribbean countries, regarding their water priorities. For this, an Open Consultation is carried out through an open online form, which will be available between August and September 2022. Here, the intention is to collect contributions from non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, academic institutions, the scientific community, the private sector, NGOs, and other stakeholders located or working in the Caribbean or in English-speaking countries of the region.


We invite you to fill out this form, which we hope will not take more than 5 minutes. ANSWER HERE.


The inputs will be valuable for the mid-term review of the International Decade for Action, "Water for Sustainable Development 2018-2028" and the 2023 United Nations Water Conference. To this end, at the beginning of 2022, the Natural Resources Division at ECLAC had developed and published the Public Consultation on Water Resources Priorities for Latin America and the Caribbean Region.
