New SRC Policy Brief on Investment and the SDGs

This brief authored by our trade researcher Alicia Nicholls is the first in the SRC’s new SDG & Trade Policy Brief series. It analyses the role that promoting and facilitating private domestic, foreign and diaspora investments, particularly in SDG-related sectors, could play in supplementing the SDG financing shortfall facing Caribbean small States. It does so against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic’s adverse impact on regional and international economies and societies, and the global decline in FDI flows. The Caribbean countries under study for the purposes of this Brief are the 14 independent Member States of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
