WATCH: Pierre Leads CARICOM Call At Climate Ambition Summit


Prime Minister, Hon. Philip J. Pierre, on behalf of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) outlined the region’s needs and pathways for success in the face of a deepening climate crisis at the UN Climate Ambition Summit.

At the summit held in the margins of the UN General Assembly High Level Week, Prime Minister Pierre emphasized that despite the efforts of CARICOM Member States in advancing adaptation and resilience initiatives, greater ambition by major emitters, new and increased access to climate finance as well as delivery of pledges and commitments made, will be key if small island developing states are to thrive amidst the climate crisis.

Prime Minister Pierre highlighted that the operationalisation and capitalisation of the loss and damage fund, systematic approaches for debt relief and targeted support to accelerate implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in Member States are also urgently required.

CARICOM welcomed the UN Secretary General’s Acceleration Agenda as a clear pathway for success towards ensuring the protection of lives and livelihoods.

Prime Minister Pierre is currently Lead Head for Sustainable Development and Climate Change for the CARICOM.

  1. Mr. Pierre. I’ve walked along the Castries waterfront my entire life. Even before it was the Castries Waterfront. The sea level there has been the same level as it has always been. Why do you politicians continue to lie to the masses. Do you no longer fear us? Does the ruling class need a reminder of the power of the masses?

  2. I myself thinking the man was standing up talking from his head and delivering a resounding speech. A video of man reading from a paper and struggling to pronounce the longest word on the paper reminded me of my days in Primary School when miss called us out to read from our text books. Should i clap after watching this? I wonder who in the room was listening and who remembers anything that was read there. I don’t.

  3. Marchand need a complete cosmetic overhaul and here we go again… The thing is that these individuals cannot fix there own backyard and yet what to fool the international domain.

  4. Not even a hack like honrable lowgrade can be proud of the nonsense I’m seeing there. Representing the whole of Caricom at the UN General Assembly and you decide not to practice your speech a few times. I’m surprised the PM even had a speech prepared this time because you know he normally reads from the top of his head. The jokes just keep writing themselves. SMH.

  5. PLEASE KEEP ALL YOU’LL DIRTY ABD NASTY TO YOURSELF. It’s ASHAME how you’ll behave. Senseless and Useless

  6. This is the man who represents CARICOM? Who cannot pronounce words with “th” (said with an “f” or “d” sound) – no eloquence. This speech was boring and with no conviction – just mouthing what everybody else is already saying, when he could have turned in a different direction of the subject (don’t get me started here). It is evident that no “homework” was done for this speech to have been written and executed in a droll and dull manner – from paper!!! I am so ashamed!
