Strengthening Coordinated and Effective Partnerships for sustainable development of SIDS

  1. 1. Strengthening coordinated and effective partnership for sustainable development of SIDS A civil society perspective on making partnerships work Anna Cadiz Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI)
  2. 2. CANARI’s mission To promote and facilitate equitable participation and effective collaboration in the management of natural resources critical to development in the Caribbean islands, so that people will have a better quality of life and natural resources will be conserved, through action learning and research, capacity building, communication and fostering partnerships.
  3. 3. Effective partnerships in the Caribbean Consorcio Ambiental Dominicano (CAD) is a national level, strategic and multi-sectoral partnership in the Dominican Republic focused on natural resource management and conservation.
  4. 4. Learning from the CAD experience SHARED VALUES: all stakeholders have an important role to play in natural resource management / conservation and results will be improved by working collaboratively SPECIFICITY: members work in different geographic areas, have different responsibilities and interests (law enforcement, on the ground management, research, education, etc) EQUITY: even with their formal legal mandate, government partners do not have greater power in the partnership... all partners have a voice
  5. 5. EFFECTIVE GOVERNANCE: CAD also implements its mission through strategic alliances and partners with international and inter-governmental agencies, universities and the private sector. A clear governance structure allows for joint decision-making and mechanisms to avoid and resolve disputes. VALUE ADDED AND CLEAR PURPOSE: All members are environmental/ conservation oriented. Strategic areas of focus complement the member organisations but do not overlap with individual workplans. “Unity in diversity”. As a national network, they are able to access funding that individual members may not be able to access. CAD retains a strong voice in national policy development and implementation.
  6. 6. Caribbean Network of Fisherfolk Organisations (CNFO) Informal regional network of fisherfolk operating in all of the CARICOM countries to build the capacities of fisherfolk to play an effective role in fisheries governance. Their four areas of strategic focus are: – Information – capacity building – policy advocacy – policy engagement
  7. 7. Key lessons learned from CNFO STRUCTURE: Even though informal, CNFO has a coordinating body of elected representatives from each member country. This structure enables the regional network to reach out to the national and local levels. LINKAGES: 3 key and value-added partners (CANARI, CERMES and CRFM) that have opened doors for CNFO to take part in global negotiations on fisheries policies. In addition, they have direct links with national fisheries divisions and national fisherfolk organisations.
  8. 8. KEY SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE, ABILITIES: • CNFO is focusing on building leadership skills of all members of the coordinating team • CNFO recently built its technical knowledge about how climate change will affect the fisheries sector and potential adaptation strategies through an ACP Fish II project implemented by CANARI • CNFO updated its Communication Strategy and built capacity of members of the coordinating team in effective communications (media releases, participatory videos, etc.)
  9. 9. Caribbean voice in global civil society partnership: IRF2015 • Share knowledge to build capacity and effectiveness of work • Collective global voice for advocacy on the post-2015 SDGs • Coordination • Resource mobilisation
  10. 10. In conclusion, partnerships… • must be developed taking into account these core values and principles; • must involve civil society at the development stage and throughout their engagement and implementation of key actions; • should link global, regional, national and local levels.
