Following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Cayman Islands Government took deliberate action to suppress the virus and preserve lives. However, the need to limit the local economic impact of the pandemic is now also urgent. Although economic diversification will form an important part of this recovery and future resilience, truly sustainable economic recovery also requires cross-sectoral collaboration and focus to ensure that this recovery strengthens and re-builds the economy, whilst protecting the environment and the social fabric of the Islands.
In support of the economic recovery efforts of the Government, the National Conservation Council and the Department of Environment have identified a series of opportunities to help sow the seeds of an economic recovery plan that builds resilience and has the principles of sustainability embedded at its core. We hope that the country will find this useful.
