Hi, I’m Derval Barzey, host of the Climate Conscious Podcast. 

We’ve partnered with CANARI, the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute for our new series: Better than Before. Exploring how to build a better Caribbean after the COVID-19 pandemic.

One thing the pandemic showed us is how much everything is connected. Better than Before examines how the Caribbean region can leverage COVID-19 recovery efforts for equitable and sustainable growth. 

 Can we really achieve economic growth and protect the environment?

What does it take to Transition to a green economy?

Why is a Gender-sensitive approach to development needed?

How can we tap into the inherent resilience of our people?

 We’re asking the hard questions to find the right solutions. 

But we cannot do it without you! So, join us wherever you listen to podcasts for this 5 part series and hear insights on the dimensions of recovery and making good investments with our future in mind.

Together, we’re redefining our development to be socially inclusive, climate resilient and environmentally sustainable. Re-building the Caribbean Better than Before.
