CARIBBEAN - St Kitts and Nevis Activities

Commencement Activities

The Office of the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis accepted the invitation to be the start-up country for Small Islands Voice in the Caribbean region, by letter, dated 07.01.02. UNESCO consultant, Ms Gillian Cambers, visited the country from 14-18th January 2002 to meet with individuals, organisations and the media, and to lay the groundwork for the initiative. This was followed by a second visit, 4-12th February, 2002, by Ms. Cambers, and Ms. Claire Green, Communications Officer with UNESCO's Environment and Development in Coastal Regions and Small Islands platform (CSI).
