This workshop formed part of a process to contribute to the definition of information systems for the monitoring and evaluation of the various stages of the AGRO 2003-2015 Plan and the Jagdeo Initiative for revitalizing agriculture in the Caribbean.
The objective of the workshop was to discuss, clarify and select of indicators from the list that was arrived at in Santiago, Chile 2004, with additions and modifications, where necessary to reflect Caribbean circumstances. The document containing the 216 indicators was circulated to participants for their review prior to the workshop (Agenda Annex 1). Specifically the workshop: (a) reviewed each set of indicators as these relate to each of the four dimensions under the AGRO 2015, namely Production-Trade Dimension, Sections I– III; Ecological-Environmental Dimension, Sections IV–VI; Socio-cultural-human Dimension, Sections X-XI; and Political-institutional Dimension, Sections X–XII, and determine their relevance and appropriateness for the Caribbean countries and identify the proper sources of information; (b) revised and agreed on the set of indicators which Caribbean countries will use to monitor their progress of the AGRO 2015; and (c) made the required contributions to achieve the expected results, including those relating to an information system for the follow up of the Jagdeo Initiative as part of the Agro Plan 2015 and the institutional cooperation arrangements among national and international agencies for the development of the information system. A representative group of eight (8) Member States and ten (10) organisations participated in the workshop (List of Participants Annex 2).
