Wednesday 13 April 2011  Recognizing that globalizing forces influence community development, forging partnerships to improve efficiency in the use of resources is paramount. That sentiment was expressed by the Director of Research in the Ministry of Social Transformation, Augustus Cadet.


Mr. Cadet spoke against the backdrop of a blossoming partnership between Saint Lucia and the Coady Institute—a center of excellence for community based development in Canada.


This speaks volumes. It speaks to the potential for the formation of strategic global alliances and movements in pursuit of community development. It's quickly becoming an imperative. It's quickly becoming something in which we have no choice.” 


The types of alliances we form are important especially in terms of knowledge sharing, Cadet says, negating the inclination to reinvent the wheel.


“The ministry is definitely in support of and has embraced the whole idea of people centered integrated development—giving people the tools for their own empowerment.”


Public education and awareness building, Cadet says, are quintessential in this central approach to community development.
