Barbados is “leading by example” in its transition to a green economy, according to Foreign Minister Maxine McClean.
Government buildings are already using renewable energy solutions.
Bajans are also using creative and home-grown solutions to counter the negative effects of the changing weather.
The Small Island Developing State (SIDS) is also inspiring other islands in the Caribbean region to follow in its footsteps.
Speaking to Jocelyne Sambira, Ms McClean began by sharing some measures the island has used to protect its coastline.
