With the financial and technical support of the Caribbean Development Bank, the United Kingdom for International Development in the Caribbean (DFID-Caribbean) and the European Commission Delegation in Barbados and Eastern Caribbean, the Ministry of Sustainable Development (MSD) coordinates the formulation of the Adaptation Strategy of St. Kitts & Nevis that means the beggining of the Adaptation Process. The Ministry of Finance also supports the MSD in the formulation of the report, and the initial draft also goes through a consultation process of the civil society and a review phase cared out by the Federal Cabinet for its official outcome.
The Adaptation Strategy starts an adaptation process that comes along with institutional arrangements inside the government structure. The creation of the Cabinet Committee on Finance and the Economy, the Inter-Ministerial Technical Committee on National Transformation and the Coordination and Programming Unit indicate the path for the implementation of this strategy in each national agency. In addition, the Ministry of Finance is in charge of the Fiscal Management for the implementation of the strategy. External financing is required to move ahead with this strategy, and the government of St. Kitts & Nevis counts on the European Community and regional and international donors.
Monitoring and evaluation
The Ministry of Finance is required to present financial reports on quarterly basis that will be presented to the Internal Audit Unit of the same Ministry.
Connection with sectoral planning
Every sectorial agency involved in the adaptation process has to coordinate efforts with the Coordination and Programming Unit.
