The video production consultancy is being offered as part of the project ‘Strengthening the Engagement of Caribbean Civil Society in Biodiversity Conservation Through Local and Regional Networking and Sharing of Learning and Best Practices’. The project, which is being implemented by Panos Caribbean, is designed to enable local and regional information sharing and networking on species, key biodiversity areas, biodiversity, critical ecosystems and approaches to conservation in the conservation corridors of Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
It has been made possible through funding from the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF), which provides grants for both non-governmental and private sector entities to help protect biodiversity hotspots across the globe.
Panos Caribbean is an international information organisation established in 1986. Panos believes that information which is independent, accurate and timely is a key resource for development. Information needs to be locally generated in order to enable countries and communities to shape and communicate their own development agendas through informed public debate.
Its mission is to promote sustainable development in the Wider Caribbean region through empowering all sectors of society to articulate their own information and perspectives on development issues and broadcast them across language and political borders. In particular, Panos aims to disseminate, through the media, the voices of poor and marginalised people who are affected by certain development issues (farmers and fisher folk, women, children, people living with HIV/AIDS, persons with disabilities et al). This encourages their full participation in shaping the development of their societies.
Since 1989, Panos has been working in the Caribbean through close alliance with the media in the region to raise awareness about select environmental issues.
