Barbados maintains policies and practices that are compatible with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the TPNW, and can therefore sign and ratify or accede to the Treaty without the need for a change in conduct.
Barbados associated itself with a statement by CARICOM in the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, which said: 'Although CARICOM is located in a nuclear free zone, we are not immune from the consequences of the most dangerous weapons on earth. In this regard we welcome the TPNW’s entry into force of January of 2021 and view this as an extraordinary achievement. CARICOM looks forward to engage constructively in the first meeting of state parties'.1"
- Barbados should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
- Barbados should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol with the IAEA, and upgrade to a Modified Small Quantities Protocol.
