The Caribbean Policy Development Centre (CPDC) through the mechanism of the Caribbean (Civil Society) Consultative Working Group (CCWG) is currently undertaking research aimed at highlighting the level of participation by Civil Society in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). CPDC, through funding by the Commonwealth Foundation and the European Union (EU) has established the CCWG to serve as a consultative mechanism to provide NGOs and CSOs with an opportunity to input into the regional policy-making process by bringing their experiences at the sectoral and national levels to influence regional policy dialogue.

This survey will only take a few minutes of your time. It is a continuous effort by CPDC to provide regional information for civil society organisations and act as a partner in your development.

If you have any questions, please contact us at cpdc@caribsurf.com or by phone at 1 (246) 437-6055.
