Sec­re­tary Gen­er­al of the Unit­ed Na­tions, An­tónio Guter­res has praised lead­ers with­in the Caribbean Com­mu­ni­ty (Cari­com) for their lead­er­ship in the wake of the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, even as they con­front shocks to their economies, the tourism sec­tor, trade and re­mit­tances.

Ad­dress­ing a vir­tu­al meet­ing of Cari­com lead­ers on Thurs­day, Guter­res said: “Your unique voice is vi­tal as we tack­le shared threats such as cli­mate change, cit­i­zen in­se­cu­ri­ty and the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic that ex­pose deep and sys­temic in­equal­i­ties.”

He said the pan­dem­ic’s so­cioe­co­nom­ic im­pacts have been worse than the virus it­self for some de­vel­op­ing economies, in­clud­ing the Caribbean. He high­light­ed his push for a re­lief pack­age equiv­a­lent to at least 10 per cent of the glob­al econ­o­my, as well as an ap­peal for debt re­lief.

“As you have long ad­vo­cat­ed, the world must look be­yond in­comes and fac­tor in the vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties of coun­tries. The pri­vate sec­tor, in­clud­ing the cred­it rat­ing agen­cies, al­so must be en­gaged in re­lief ef­forts.”

Guter­res al­so un­der­lined his sol­i­dar­i­ty with Cari­com mem­bers in ad­dress­ing cli­mate change.

“Your lead­er­ship and moral voice on the front lines is cru­cial for chart­ing a re­cov­ery that will ac­cel­er­ate the de­car­boniza­tion of the glob­al econ­o­my and build a more in­clu­sive and re­silient fu­ture,” he said

The Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al em­pha­sized his full sup­port for the Caribbean vi­sion of be­com­ing the first ful­ly cli­mate-re­silient re­gion in the world. How­ev­er, he not­ed the “sig­nif­i­cant bar­ri­ers” coun­tries face, in­clud­ing for ac­cess to cli­mate fi­nance

Turn­ing to sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment, Guter­res re­port­ed that the UN sys­tem is ramp­ing up sup­port for the Caribbean and all small is­land de­vel­op­ing states

We are putting our best ca­pac­i­ties and re­sources to sup­port your voice and par­tic­i­pa­tion in glob­al gov­er­nance process­es, to pro­vide sound pol­i­cy ad­vice and help bro­ker the part­ner­ships that will fa­cil­i­tate your con­tin­ued progress to­wards the Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment Goals,” he said

“This in­cludes ex­pand­ing and re­con­fig­ur­ing as nec­es­sary our phys­i­cal pres­ence and en­sur­ing tai­lored sup­port to every coun­try in the Caribbean.”

The Sec­re­tary-Gen­er­al al­so thanked CARI­COM for high­light­ing the cru­cial is­sue of ad­vanc­ing gen­der par­i­ty, and its un­wa­ver­ing sup­port for mul­ti­lat­er­al­ism
