Port of Spain, August 27, 2020 – Civil society has a key role in advocating for good environmental governance and sustainable development priorities in the Caribbean which will help to ensure a green, resilient and just COVID-19 recovery for the region.
Support for this advocacy effort is now available with the release of the new toolkit ‘An advocacy toolkit for Caribbean civil society organisations’ by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI).
The toolkit provides practical guidance on tools, techniques and best practices for designing and conducting effective advocacy at the local, national, regional or international level. Mini case studies capture examples of civil society advocacy that will inspire actions by others.
The toolkit was used to train over 30 civil society participants from 11 Caribbean countries in a virtual online short course over June and July 2020 held by CANARI.
