ECLAC and the OECS establish an Enhanced Programme of Action on the Escazú Agreement in the Eastern Caribbean

May 22, 2020 Destination Global No Comments Email Email


The Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Ms. Alicia Bárcena, and the Director General of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), Dr. Didacus Jules, signed yesterday a Memorandum of Understanding establishing an “Enhanced Programme of Action on the Escazú Agreement in the Eastern Caribbean.”

The programme recognizes the Escazú Agreement as a fundamental contribution to the implementation of international commitments of OECS Member States, such as the UN 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, the OECS Revised Treaty of Basseterre, and the Saint George’s Declaration of Principles for Environmental Sustainability. In addition to having been endorsed by the OECS Council of Ministers on Environmental Sustainability in 2018 and 2019, the Escazú Agreement has been signed by five of the six independent States of the OECS and ratified by three of them (Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Kitts and Nevis and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines).

The Memorandum states that ECLAC and the OECS intend to reinforce the environmental dimension of sustainable development in the Eastern Caribbean through the Escazú Agreement by facilitating policy formulation, technical cooperation, training and capacity-building and strategic advocacy and awareness, among others. In particular, both institutions commit to elaborating joint studies, publications, reports and analytical work, as well as providing technical assistance to Member States and organizing joint activities in support of the environmental dimension of the 2030 Agenda, including green recovery.
