Caribbean Sub-Regional Coordination Platform

The Sub-regional Platform brings together UN member organisations and various governmental, non-governmental, international and civil society organisations, and other international cooperation bodies.

Objectives

To promote the coordination of the RMRP activities aiming to ensure assistance, integration, and protection of refugees and migrants, and jointly deliver an effective and efficient response to their material needs, in complementarity and reinforcing the country’s government’s response.

Structure

The Caribbean Sub-Regional Platform covers Aruba, Curaçao, Dominican Republic, Guyana, and Trinidad & Tobago. This team works closely with the national co-leads for each country, where standing Refugee and Migrant Working Groups are the main national coordination mechanism.
