The German government is actively engaged, in close cooperation with the international community, in combating poverty, securing food, establishing peace, freedom, democracy, and human rights, shaping globalisation in a socially equitable manner, and preserving the environment and natural resources. Development cooperation is one of the most important instruments for achieving these goals. The German government regards it as an imperative of humanity and of reason. Development cooperation guarantees a future for people in developing countries – and thus for everyone else, too. The German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development contributed € 6.3 million to climate resilience in CARICOM Member States. Of this sum, € 1.5 million was allocated to the implementation of TAPSEC while € 4.3 million was allocated to the Climate Resilient and Sustainable Energy Supply (Cli-RES) project.
