The objective of the Caribbean Climate Innovation Center (CCIC) is to establish regional institutional capacity that will support Caribbean entrepreneurs and new ventures involved in developing locally-appropriate solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation. Through its programs, activities and financing, the Caribbean CIC and its network of partners and stakeholders will provide a regionally-driven approach to solving climate, energy and resource challenges and support economic development through job creation. The program will provide targeted support, mentoring, training and funding facilitation to up to 80 companies in the region. The model for the CCIC was developed to specifically address the identified gaps across five priority sectors: Resource use/efficiency, Sustainable agri-business, Solar Energy, Energy Efficiency and Water Management.
