CSB Program Areas

1/ CAPACITY BUILDING

CSB believes that CSOs must develop, implement and sustain their own solutions to problems in a way that helps them shape and exercise control over their physical, social, economic and cultural environments.

 

By building the skills and confidence of individuals and CSOs, and expanding the leadership base, CSB will help civil society implement practical strategies for creating positive change.

 

Through its program of CSO clustering, incubation and acceleration, CSB seeks to create an effective, expanding, diverse, inclusive civil society sector that is more able to solve societal problems.

Through building civil society awareness and education, CSB will foster a strategic community agenda, a shared understanding and common vision for the future.

2/ GOVERNANCE AND PARTICIPATION

Civil society organisations (CSOs) across the world are being asked to be more and more transparent and demonstrate their accountability, transparency and legitimacy. It is important that CSOs are seen as legitimate and credible actors in the public sphere, so that they can play a central role in supporting healthy democracies.

 

CSB seeks to enact a workable, effective and inclusive CSO Bill to energise civil society. It is also CSB's intention to implement a system of self-regulation to provide greater legitimacy, transparency and accountability for CSOs and give them the space to demonstrate their competence in self-management and accountability to their stakeholders. CSB believes in good governance practices and is a signatory to the Caribbean Policy Development Center (CPDC) Code of Conduct and Ethics.

3/ SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

CSB is committed to national development planning and the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

By connecting CSOs to the SDGs, CSB seeks to assist the Government in its development and environmental goals.

CSB affirms the importance of the National Development Plan (NDP) as a catalyst for Government to achieve specific development goals.

CSB will advocate for the Government's formal endorsement of the NDP process.

 

CSB will identify and suggest priorities for joint project implementation with Government, and ensure that all such projects be referenced to the NDP.
