About us

Our Vision

Climate change, waste and water management, governance and sustainable economic and social development are major challenges for the Caribbean today. The region comprises more than 40 territories within 1500 km, with populations varying from 2000 in Saba to around 12 million in Cuba or Haiti, and economies ranging from high to low-income countries. Such diversity lowers the capacity of a single State to face these challenges by themselves. Cooperation between stakeholders is therefore necessary to design and implement efficient regional and local solutions.

Unite Caribbean brings its expertise across linguistic and territorial borders to support regional cooperation projects, foster the conditions for improved knowledge and experience sharing and promote the sustainable development of the region.

Strengthen, unite, implement are Unite Caribbean’s key messages for a more prosperous and resilient Caribbean.

 

Our Approach

Unite Caribbean’s identity is defined by its unique mission: answer the challenges in the area by developing regional cooperation, encouraging networking and knowledge sharing.

Unite Caribbean relies on two complementary skills to promote and support cooperation in the Caribbean:

These two competencies complement and enhance each other. They make us unique. They are our core strength.

We focus on 4 sectors:

Our values

Unite Caribbean’s actions are based on several fundamental principles:

As a social economy firm, Unite Caribbean applies business principles and efficiency to achieving social and societal objectives, and its corporate purpose is specifically to contribute to the sustainable economic and social development of the Caribbean.

Unite Caribbean applies these principles internally, giving a priority to gender equity, the promotion of diversity and its leadership pledge to cap salaries and to limit salaries gap within the team.

The climate and environmental commitment of Unite Caribbean is not limited to advising local and regional actors or implementing projects. The firm developed strict guidelines in terms of sorting and recycling waste, and, mindful of its carbon footprint, Unite Caribbean carries out the necessary actions to limit its carbon emissions and compensate them.

Finally, Unite Caribbean established strict social distancing protocols and promotes working from home to ensure the well-being of its teams during the COVID19 pandemic.
