The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is funding a three-year Local Capacity for Local Solutions (LCLS) project working to improve the managerial and operational capacity of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in the Eastern and Southern Caribbean (ESC).

RTI International is the prime implementer of the project and the Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) is a contracted partner.

Our NGO Link Forum is a central place for our NGO colleagues and other users, to come together and share their opinion on a wide array of topics which impact the NGO sector.

Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the Caribbean have done extensive work throughout their respective countries in order to address the social ills which impact the development of their societies. However, the public and other NGOs are often times unaware of the important work undertaken by Caribbean NGOs as it is not widely publicized. The Country NGO Overview therefore seeks to highlight the work being done by NGOs in the region with the hope of facilitating partnerships and collaborations amongst them as well as raising public awareness.
