CANARI collaborates and develops partnerships with key stakeholders throughout the Caribbean and across the globe.

Partnerships support delivery of CANARI’s mission by:

  1. enhancing the Institute’s capacity and access to resources (e.g. finance, expertise, information, technology);
  2. providing avenues for influencing policy, practice and governance arrangements (e.g. via access to policy making processes and policy makers);
  3. providing avenues for influencing management practice and actions (e.g. via engagement with managers such as forestry and fisheries agencies and civil society organisations [CSOs]).

Our partners include resource users, CSOs, research institutes; donors, government and intergovernmental agencies, and the private sector.  CANARI’s partnerships may be broad-based medium- to long-term collaborations or focused on short-term specific areas of cooperation.

We actively seek new partners and welcome inquiries on opportunities that meet our partnership principles.

Long-term partnerships

CANARI has developed long-term partnership arrangements with national, regional and international organisations where there are clear mutual, ongoing strategic benefits to be gained from collaborating.  Our key regional partners include the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Commission and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat and its technical agencies, such as the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC).

CANARI also collaborates closely with the University of the West Indies Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (UWI CERMES).  We are a founding member of Nature Caribé, an alliance of Caribbean CSOs.  Internationally, we work closely with United Nations agencies like the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO).  Key global partners include the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and the Green Economy Coalition (GEC).  These relationships have contributed significantly to CANARI’s development and the results we have achieved.
