Description of the project:
CANARI has been contracted by the OECS Commission to execute this work under the European Union (EU) funded OECS Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) Project on Climate Change Adaptation and Sustainable Land Management in the Eastern Caribbean (the iLAND Resilience programme). The project to strengthen institutional frameworks is co-funded through the Powering Innovations in Civil Society and Enterprises for Sustainability in the Caribbean (PISCES) project being supported by a grant to CANARI from the European Union.
The OECS iLAND Resilience project represents an important opportunity to not only lend the in-house CANARI environmental, climate and forestry expertise to national policy formulation, but it also affords the Institute the opportunity to ensure civil society fully engages in and effectively contributes to national policy development.
Through this project, CANARI is providing technical assistance for the development of institutional frameworks for improved environmental management in four Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Member States – Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis and Saint Lucia. The targeted policies and legislation address environmental management, climate resilience and forest management. See here for the project summary.
