Policymakers meet in Trinidad to discuss attainment of SDGs for the Caribbean
Published on April 6, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad -- Pursuit of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS) was due to be the main focus of discussion at a meeting in Port of Spain, Trinidad, on Tuesday. Policymakers, representatives from regional organizations, and civil society groups were expected to attend.

The eighth meeting of the Technical Advisory Committee of the Regional Coordinating Mechanism (TAC/RCM) for implementation of the SIDS sustainable development agenda and SDGs in the Caribbean is hosted by the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) at its subregional headquarters in Port of Spain.

Representatives will also consider ways to strengthen the TAC/RCM, as part of effort to re-invigorate the regional body to enable it to more effectively carry out its mandate.

The RCM was established by the Caribbean Development and Cooperation Committee (CCDC) in 2006, at the request of Caribbean governments, in order to support the implementation of the sustainable development agenda of Caribbean SIDS was mandated.

The RCM facilitates a coordinated approach among Caribbean countries towards achieving the development goals as outlined in the three SIDS platforms: the Barbados Programme of Action, the Mauritius Strategy and the SAMOA Pathway.
