Islands are facing unprecedented challenges from climate change and significant investment is needed to move the needle to a more climate-resilient economy and society. As we look towards the UNFCCC COP27 summit, it is essential that climate financing be prioritized on global agendas to support the green recovery and future resilience of islands.
