This presentation shares the experience of climate finance and governance in the low-income Caribbean nation of Haiti. Haiti is one of the most vulnerable countries when it comes to the impacts of climate change globally as recognized by the Global Climate Risk Index. The 'Climate Investments in Haiti' project represents one intervention and this presentation explores how climate policies may advance its sustainable and national development objectives. Taking the Green Climate Fund Readiness program as a case study, the presentation shares the main points and lessons from the project implementation since April 2018. It excavates lessons learned in interaction with relevant partners drawn from field work and interviews conducted from June to September 2018. As a thought experiment, it shares how policy makers, national institutions, international development partners and national stakeholders together construct the institutional environment, national priorities and investment projects aimed at boosting low carbon, climate resilient development.
