By BBN Staff: A workshop scheduled for Thursday, February 25th, will be conducted by scientists from the Caribbean Agricultural Research and Development Institute (CARDI), as part of the “Coconut Industry Development for the Caribbean” project which is being funded by the European Union and targeting coconut stakeholders in Belize.
The project is aimed at enhancing the competitiveness of small-scale coconut farmers by identifying market opportunities, creating synergies between national and regional programmes, improving access to advisory services for improved coconut production and has been welcomed by stakeholders for its potential to improve income and employment opportunities, food security, and the overall development of the Caribbean coconut sector.
This project will be implemented in nine CARIFORUM member countries, namely: Belize, Dominica, the Dominican Republic, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago.
