Project Description

St. Lucia is vulnerable to climate change, severe weather events, and economic shocks. Our cooperator, the Saint Lucia National Conservation Fund (SLUNCF), is one of eight trust funds endowed by the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund to create long-term funding for sustainable development in the Caribbean. SLUNCF supports community-based conservation, restoration, and effective management of St. Lucia’s biodiversity and natural resources. At the IAF, we strengthen the ability of local philanthropic organizations to conduct effective programming and unlock additional public and private resources for long-term development. SLUNCF raises funds from local private sector and philanthropic organizations and then invests in community projects in St. Lucia. SLUNCF’s investments provide training and technical assistance to mitigate the impact of future environmental challenges by supporting grassroots organizations.

This cooperative agreement is part of the IAF’s commitment to strengthen community-led disaster mitigation and resilience in the Caribbean. It advances our partnership with USAID, Building Community Resilience in the Eastern & Southern Caribbean, as well as the U.S.-Caribbean Resilience Partnership.
