USA / THE BAHAMAS – Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs, Brian A. Nichols will travel to The Bahamas, on June 8-9, to accompany vice president of the United States Kamala Harris on her trip to the region to discuss climate resilience, energy and food security, and economic prosperity with Caribbean leaders.

This trip also celebrates the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations between the United States and The Bahamas.

On June 9, assistant secretary Nichols will provide remarks at the US-Caribbean Partnership to Address the Climate Crisis 2030 (PACC 2030) Climate Resilient Clean Energy Summit hosted by the Atlantic Council’s Caribbean Initiative.

“The US-Caribbean Partnership to Address the Climate Crisis 2030, or PACC 2030, was launched by vice president Harris and Caribbean leaders at the June 2022 Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles. PACC 2030 is the US government’s flagship partnership with Caribbean partners to advance climate adaptation and resilience and to expand clean energy programs across the region.”

Participants will include companies from US and Caribbean countries, local leaders, technical assistance experts, and government partners to (1) discuss best practices in addressing energy security through climate-resilient clean energy in the Caribbean; (2) identify funding and technical assistance gaps that could be bridged through greater partnership; and (3) explore opportunities to further unleash the energy transition in the Caribbean while building greater climate resilience – in furtherance of PACC 2030 goals.

The agenda for the PACC 2030 Climate Resilient Clean Energy Summit can be found on the Summit website.
