CARIBBEAN - San Andres Archipelago (Colombia) Activities

Strengthening documentation centres

The Corporation for the Sustainable Development of the Archipelago of San Andrés, Old Providence and Santa Catalina (CORALINA) has two documentation centres, one in San Andrés and one in Old Providence. These centres are open to the general public and students. (The centre in San Andrés will be moved in mid-2003 to a more central location).

As part of Small Islands Voice these documentation centres will be strengthened with additional computer equipment, and training will be provided to specific groups such as fishers, farmers, Adopt-a-beach groups in the use of new information and communication technologies so that they can take part in the 'information age' and share in the wealth of knowledge, international development fora and programmes, and even the important social validation that comes from exchanging similar experiences and learning from others.
