Contact: Mark Bynoe,  Assistant Executive Director,

Officially opened in August 2005, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC) is mandated by the Heads of States of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to lead the Caribbean region’s response to managing and adapting to climate change, while simultaneously serving as the main repository for regional and national climate change data and information. The CCCCC works to assist Member States to protect their climate systems for the benefit of present and future generations. The efforts of the CCCCC emphasize the need for policy-related, people-centered and partnership-oriented interventions that are impactful and help build resilience to the effects of climate change. The CCCCC has worked and is working to advance national and regional approaches in the pursuit of a risk management ethos for transformative action in the face of a changing climate.

The Manila Observatory is a Jesuit scientific research institution with research work in the fields of atmospheric and earth science in the Philippines and the Southeast Asian region. It advocates a science-based approach to sustainable development and poverty reduction. Inspired by Ignatian spirituality, the Manila Observatory is committed to a scientific culture in its regional and global context through research excellence in environmental and pre-disaster science particularly in the areas of atmospheric studies, solid earth dynamics, instrumentation, and applied geomatics. The Manila Observatory therefore envisions itself as doing science that effectively enhances resilience through evidence-based scientific information.

Contact: Felipe Arango García, Executive Director,

Transforma is a Colombian think tank founded in 2017 which focuses on sustainable development and climate change. Transforma is underpinned by the deep conviction that the world requires a transformation for a viable world and that advancing towards this path requires to re-establish or substantially enhance environmental, social and economic conditions so that humanity and the planet can thrive. Transforma works across scales bridging international, regional (Latin America) and national coalitions and engaging public, private and civil society actors to catalyse transformative and systemic policies, politics and action. Transforma believes in the need for integral knowledge to design comprehensive responses and therefore builds on the varied expertise of former climate negotiators and public officials, economists, lawyers, social scientists, engineers, and biologists, among others.
