In this third issue, we have focused on sustainability as we endeavour to survive and adapt to the 'new normal' that has come to define this COVID-19 era. To this end, we feature interviews and articles on 'coral reefs in crisis', tackling food insecurity, building business resilience and embracing technology which is disrupting the future of work. Our flagship section for this issue demonstrates how Caribbean businesses and philanthropists supported the fight against COVID-19 and we include some corporate donations to governments and communities in 10 Caribbean countries.
