The workshop is organized as part of the review process for the Strategic Development Plan for Laborie under a project entitled Creating Sustainable Communities – Building Capacity for Adaptation to Climate Change and Related Issues. This project is financed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grants Programme (SGP) in Saint Lucia.

Saturday’s workshop is co-financed financed by the Caribbean Local Economic Development (CARILED) Programme in line with the co-funding requirements under the GEF-SGP. CARILED Officials will also collaborate with the LDF to facilitate this workshop.

CARILED’s strategy for local economic planning relies heavily on the mobilization of local knowledge and support. Consequently, the workshop provides a forum for residents to be consulted on their ideas for local area economic development plan for Laborie. The report from this workshop will form part of the overall review of the Strategic Development Plan for Laborie and will contribute to the identification of priorities for development for the community.
