Waste and water management issues are key for Caribbean territories with limited size and resources. Pollution, bad governance and droughts worsen the lack of freshwater in the region. Cooperation is necessary to share common experiences and best practices and move forward together towards SDG 6 “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”. Regarding waste management, Caribbean territories could benefit from achieving SDG 12 “Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns” and particularly 12.3, 12.4 and 12.5 targets. The region indeed doesn’t feature adequate sorting, treatment, and recycling facilities particularly regarding plastics. Plastic pollution threatens drinking water resources while blocking streams and damaging ecosystems and touristic activities.
Unite Caribbean supports public and private actors to find relevant solutions for water and waste management through its expertise in consulting and project management.
We offer consulting services and manage projects in the entire Caribbean basin.
Unite Caribbean designed and implemented a Caribbean-wide community-based collection, export and recycling system for plastic waste, with St Lucia as the pilot country.
