  1. Program Areas – give titles and thematic focus:

Under its 2020-2030 Strategic Plan, CANARI’s work is organised into four Themes:

  • Resilience – This theme’s goal is to utilise participatory approaches to improve the resilience of communities, livelihoods and ecosystems in the Caribbean to climate change and natural disasters. Principle areas of work:
  • Ecosystem-based and community-based approaches (EBA/CBA) to adaptation, mitigation and disaster risk management.

 

  • Climate proofing natural resource-based enterprises and livelihood resilience.

 

  • Research and knowledge sharing and management on climate change and disaster impacts, vulnerabilities and solutions, particularly focused on local and traditional knowledge and practices.

 

  • Technical capacity building of civil society organisations (CSOs), local communities and resource users and managers to scale up actions on climate change and disasters.

 

  • Mainstreaming climate change and disaster considerations through participatory policy development and planning at community, sectoral, national and regional levels.

 

  • Strengthening mechanisms for participatory climate governance and management, including enhancing civil society’s access to climate and disaster finance.

 

  • Biodiversity and Ecosystems – This theme’s goal is to utilise participatory approaches to conserve and sustainably use the Caribbean’s biodiversity, ecosystems and natural heritage. Principle areas of work:
    • Supporting local-level natural resource stewardship.

 

  • Promoting landscape-level management initiatives.

 

  • Building the health and resilience of Caribbean ecosystems.

 

  • Rehabilitating and restoring ecosystems.

 

  • Strengthening participatory frameworks, mechanisms and knowledge bases.

 

  • Equity – This theme’s goal is to promote and support economic development models in the Caribbean that are more inclusive, environmentally sustainable and resilient, with local nature-based enterprises as a key pathway to achieve this. Principle areas of work:
  • Supporting local community nature-based micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) via capacity building using innovative tools.

6

  • Creating a more enabling institutional framework to support MSMEs, including via transforming policies, laws, regulations and financing.

 

  • Supporting rural community-driven creation or scaling up of viable livelihood options based on the sustainable use of ecosystem goods and services.

 

  • Environmental valuation and natural capital accounting.

 

  • Promoting transformation to economic development models that are environmentally sustainable, fair in spreading economic benefits, and resilient to climate change and other risks.

 

  • Participatory Governance – This theme’s goal is to enhance capacity and institutions to support civil society stakeholders to engage effectively and equitably in the governance and management of natural resources in the Caribbean. Principle areas of work:
  • Civil society organisational strengthening including in the areas of planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning, resources/ capacity, governance, management, and stakeholder engagement and partnerships.

 

  • Strengthening governance mechanisms/ frameworks (funding, policy, legal, fiscal, structures, processes).
  • Voice and advocacy.

 

 

  • Engaging the marginalised and vulnerable (including resources users, gender, resource dependent, poor and disempowered).
