3RD High Level Forum (HLF) of Caribbean Ministers Responsible for WASTE


The 3rd High Level Forum on Waste Management kicked off in St. Kitts & Nevis in October 2019 with representation from ministers, developmental partners, donors and waste practitioners. This forum set out to put into action the outcomes of HLF-3 and the regional agenda on waste management by highlighting the key solid waste issues faced by the islands including emerging issues, the contributions of the tourist sector to waste and identifying opportunities for projects, mobilization of financing and other resources under the theme “From Awareness to Action”. Some of the participants expressed that since work has already started, what is needed is continuous effort to build on the present work. The rate of action and the equal distribution of those actions is key to success across the region and one of the focal areas of the high-level forum.
