What we do

For the past 60 years, the United Nations in the English and Dutch-speaking Caribbean have provided strategic support and worked in close collaboration with Governments and other development partners to improve the lives and well-being of the people in the Caribbean region.

Relying on its comparative advantages, the UN funds, programmes and agencies bring expertise and work with communities on a wide range of development issues faced by the region such as good governance, food security, poverty reduction, communicable and non-communicable diseases, climate change, environmental protection, gender equality and equity, and economic growth.



The United Nations Sustainable Development Framework (UN MSDF) will guide the work of the United Nations System in the Caribbean in assisting Governments to achieve regional and national development priorities, as well as internationally agreed committments, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
