During COP26, The Bahamas made a compelling appeal to world leaders to concretize and implement the necessary policy changes required for the survival of Small Island Developing States such as The Bahamas. Following this global call for action, The Bahamas reaffirmed its interest in hosting a Regional Youth Conference on Climate Change. This event will support The Bahamas’ position on the need for climate action and will allow Bahamians to interact with their international peers around the region to discuss issues surrounding climate change and particularly those issues that plague at risk nations. The event will be the first regional English-speaking climate change Conference of Youth and the first of its kind to be hosted by The Bahamas. Moreover, the event will highlight The Bahamas’ leadership in the meaningful engagement and inclusion of young people in international climate diplomacy; and will embody the Government’s progressive youth empowerment agenda.
