EcoMicro aims to build the resilience of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), and low-income households to climate change. It does this by providing technical assistance and support of up to US$280,000 for local financial institutions to:
- design and implement green finance products;
- analyse the vulnerability of loan portfolios to climate change; and
- reduce the direct environmental impact of the institutions themselves.
The Carbon Trust’s technical support work on the programme will be delivered as part of a broader expert consortium, working alongside the Dutch sustainability consulting firm, Enclude BV, and local partners Development Options Ltd and the University of the West Indies Consulting.
Eligible financial institutions in Antigua & Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago can find more information about the programme on the EcoMicro website.
