Strenghtening civil society’s action and advocacy capacity to increase climate resilience in the Caribbean.


Support concrete solutions and position climate resilience on the public policy agenda.


Develop cooperation between 7 Caribbean countries and territories


Extreme weathers, droughts, sea-level rise, ocean acidification… Climate change is a very real threat for States and territories in the Caribbean. Adaptation is a fundamental and urgent challenge.
Karayib Klima was born from this urgency and aims to promote regional cooperation to share learnings, solutions and innovations.

Karayib Klima is based on the conviction that civil social can play a crucial role to stimulate climate resilience and to support governments and authorities in the region. Karayib Klima fosters the creation of coalitions between civil society stakeholders in Haiti, Dominica, Saint Lucia, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Saint-Martin to reinforce their action and advocacy capacity.

A unique and innovative project

  • By fostering Caribbean civil society partnerships;
  • By financially supporting civil society organisations to implement concrete actions and advocacy campaigns;
  • By encouraging the emergence of a regional coordination structure on the issue of climate change resilience, beyond the closure of the project.

At the heart of the project: Increase climate resilience

Karayib Klima focuses on three main themes to bring solutions to adapt to the effects of climate change in the Caribbean:

A core focus: Support regional civil society

Karayib Klima fosters the creation of civil society networks to develop knowledge sharing and regional cooperation. The project funds multi-actor and multi-county CSO coalitions from Haiti, Dominica, Saint Lucia, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Martinique and Saint-Martin on two types of activities:

Concrete actions proposing scalable, duplicable and measurable solutions and bringing mutual benefits to coalition actors

Advocacy or awareness raising campaigns contributing to increase public knowledge around climate resilience matters and influence policy change

They support and implement the project

Karayib Klima is funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, the French Agency for ecological transition (ADEME), Fondation de France and by international financial and technical partners.

The project has been created and is implemented by UNITE Caribbean, a caribbean development and cooperation consulting firm.
