Jamaica joins Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action

Jamaica has become the first country in the English Caribbean to join the 'Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action'. 
The Coalition, which was launched in April at the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group and International Monetary Fund, aims at driving stronger collective action on climate change and its impacts. 
The Coalition abides by seven principles called the Helsinki Principles which promote national climate action, especially through fiscal policy and the use of public finance. 
These principles are designed to support Finance Ministers in sharing best practices and experiences on macro, fiscal, and public financial management policies for low-carbon transformation.
