The Fund is the world’s largest dedicated fund set up to help developing countries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and enhance their ability to respond to climate change. It was set up by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 2010.
Ambassador Eklund commended the Government on its efforts and support of the islands affected by Hurricane Dorian.
The Prime Minister noted the importance of continuing to deepen ties between Sweden and The Bahamas.
H.E. Eklund was accompanied by Mr. John Wiberg, The Bahamas Honorary Consul for Sweden.
