“We are members of the N.D.C. Partnership and also member of the Commonwealth and they supported Belize in actually doing the landscape document for climate finance, what has been transpiring within the overall gamut of the sector since 2015 to 2019. And that in itself fed into the draft climate finance strategy for the country. So this webinar that took place is to focus of countries’ approach. I presented on Belize’s strategic approach towards developing that climate finance strategy with the overall goal to enhance N.D.C. implementation. So the climate finance strategy, the policy landscape [and] the N.D.C. Implementation Plan which should be launched ending of March.”
