Given the vulnerable situation to climate change as an island nation, the government has been asking for access to international funding mechanisms in order to properly mitigate the negative effects of climate change.1 Due to climate change, the Bahamas stands to lose territory, employment opportunities, and people.2 There is a national policy in place in the Bahamas to mitigate the negative effects of climate change.3 If left unchecked, climate change will affect the fishing industry, coastal, and marine activities, as well as contribute to the reduction of biodiversity resources.4

The Bahamas is one of the wealthiest Caribbean countries with an economy heavily dependent on tourism and offshore banking. Tourism together with tourism-driven construction and manufacturing accounts for approximately 60% of GDP and directly or indirectly employs half of the archipelago's labor force. Financial services constitute the second-most important sector of the Bahamian economy and, when combined with business services, account for about 36% of GDP. Manufacturing and agriculture combined contribute less than a 10th of GDP and show little growth, despite government incentives aimed at those sectors. The economy of The Bahamas shrank at an average pace of 0.8% ...See More annually between 2007-11, and tourism, financial services, and construction - pillars of the national economy - remained weak. These challenges, coupled with a growing public debt, increases in government expenditures, a narrow revenue base, and heavy dependence on customs and property taxes have led to prospects of limited growth for The Bahamas.
