In September 2017, the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) officially launched its Caribbean NGO Trends Series. This initiative is an activity under the Civil Society Regional Development Project which is funded by the European Union which seeks to enhance the capacity of NGOs in the CARIFORUM region. The Caribbean Trends Series aims to provide relevant and up-to-date information on development issues that affect the Civil Society sector, in particular, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). The main methodology will be undertaking research in the region and publishing reports on trends and developments in the NGO sector on a quarterly basis.
