Barbados to promote environmental sustainability


Barbados will promote environmental sustainability and economic development with a U.S. $100 million guarantee approved by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) that will enable the island to create a long-term instrument to finance measures related to sustainability and marine conservation.

The government has set an aspirational target of 30 per cent of the island, which has 92 kilometres of coastline, to be dedicated to conservation as a Marine Managed Area (MMA).

The IDB guarantee will help reduce borrowing costs for the country as it seeks to raise funds for conservation activities, which includes the creation of a conservation trust fund, known as the Barbados Environmental Sustainability Fund.

“The operation, which is structured as a policy-based guarantee, will also support reforms to improve environmental governance and sustainable debt management in Barbados,” the IDB said.

“In addition, it will support capacity-building in project execution within the responsible Ministry of Finance, Economic Affairs and Investment.

“The beneficiaries of this project will be the citizens in Barbados who will enjoy the environmental and economic benefits of new protected areas and an enhanced natural capital.”

The project is the first where the IDB employs a guarantee to help a country create a long-term financing framework to use sustainable bonds for conservation measures.

This is also the first IDB public sector guarantee being delivered in collaboration with a non-governmental organisation – The Nature Conservancy, a global environmental non-profit organisation, is expected to provide a co-guarantee of U.S. $50 million.

The IDB guarantee has a maximum duration of 20 years.

PM Mottley is on 2022 TIME list of world’s most influential people

May 23, 2022


Barbados Today

Prime Minister Mia Mottley has been listed among the 100 most influential people in the 2022. TIME100, the annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

In the TIME article written by Director General of the World Trade Organization Okonjo-Iweala, Mottley has been described as “bold, fearless, and possessing a great intellect and wit, the Prime Minister is a brilliant politician who knows how to shake things up.”

Okonjo-Iweala highlighted Mottley’s riveting speeches at COP26 in Glasgow late last year, when she chided the world’s leaders for not working more diligently to limit the potential catastrophic impacts of climate change.

She further noted Mottley’s work as chair of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund’s Development Committee, where she reminded the world’s finance gurus that the level of a country’s per capita income may not always be the best measure of its wealth.

Okonjo-Iweala lauded Prime Minister as a Barbadian icon.

“The Prime Minister strides boldly on the world stage. She is an embodiment of our conscience, reminding us all to treat our planet, and therefore one another, with love, dignity, and care.”
