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.

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”.
