The Caribbean’s Next Chapter - A Re-Think: The “World We Want”

By Paula Mohamed-Benjamin

Caribbean citizens live and manage their complicated and concavely-defined, rapidly changing and globally interlinked world on a daily basis. Change factors influenced by Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) inventions, interventions and use of internet-based communications redefine the pace of work and citizens’ thinking as they receive, share and process information across previously considered sovereign borders.

In 2012, the United Nations System, similarly influenced by new media and communications, launched the Post-2015 World We Want1 Consultation Platform. For the first time, they provided regional and national populations with direct internet-based access to UN global consultations.  Citizens across regional, national and subnational boundaries share and provide inputs that define new development priorities and targets, to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)2
