  • participatory policy and strategy development
  • participatory project and programme evaluation
  • training of trainers (e.g. mentors, coaches and facilitators)
  • capacity building of individuals and organisations (e.g. CSOs and government agencies) to build organisational capacity in a wide range of areas in order to enhance Caribbean natural resource management
  • collaborative communications and advocacy to build awareness and influence policy and practice
  • research and participatory action research and learning
  • use of innovative information and communications technology (ICT) tools, such as participatory video, participatory photo-journaling, participatory geographic information system (GIS) mapping and participatory three-dimensional modelling
