Open Data Project to Support Business Innovation and Transparency

St Lucia is taking the first step in making government data easily and freely accessible online. It is the first country in the region to join a new open data initiative, which will provide technical assistance and build capacity for countries to open priority data sets, including budget data.

Innovative Coral Restoration Project in Saint Lucia

The project has established two coral nurseries with over 1,300 corals growing vigorously on the specially-designed corals trees. The Ministry of Education in St Lucia, CLEAR and the Caribbean Development Bank are funding the development of a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Coral Restoration. This will be the first of its kind and will allow a growing number of local stakeholders to gain practical training in how to restore Caribbean coral reefs.
