Who We Are
The Caribbean Network for Integrated Rural Development [CNIRD] is an independent, regional non-governmental organisation founded in 1988, whose focus is on networking with national and sub-regional intermediaries based in the Caribbean region, with the objective of achieving integrated rural development CNIRD was therefore established with a view to help promote and advance the process of rural transformation in the Caribbean, especially as regards youth and women. CNIRD was born out of a concern, expressed by community development practitioners in the Caribbean, that the governments of the region and existing NGOs were not sufficiently combining their resources to respond to the socio-economic problems of the rural sector. CNIRD was therefore established with a view to help promote and advance the process of rural transformation in the Caribbean, especially as regards youth and women.
What We Do
Since its establishment in 1988, CNIRD has been working assiduously within the rural sector throughout the Caribbean region. This is evident by its research and many publications and activities over the years. CNIRD`s work falls under general programme areas, which address current development issues, such as information and communication technology, entrepreneurial development, trade, land and food security and the environment.
