Community Relations

Developing "human capital" is the key to achieving and sustaining community revitalization. The Community Relations strategy is therefore founded upon three initiatives – leadership development, knowledge dissemination and general human resource development.

The Plan recognises the need for the full participation and active involvement of the residents and community organisations at all stages of the process. Community support is an essential pre-requisite to successful implementation in East Port of Spain. The community relations strategy will provide mechanisms for:

  • Community participation in planning and development;
  • Community contracting to undertake development projects build capacity ad create sustainable employment opportunities, where appropriate;
  • Community monitoring and oversight of development projects;
  • Evaluation of development projects

The Company will articulate a community relations strategy to provide a framework for engaging residents and community groups and for collaboration in conceptualising and operationalising the proposed implementation programme.
