Welcome to CARICAD

CARICAD is a regional intergovernmental organisation specialising in transforming and modernising the Public Sector of Caribbean States. Located in Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, CARICAD was established in 1980 by an Agreement among Caribbean Community (CARICOM) governments.

Over the past 25 years, many Member States have recorded significant improvements in their public administrations and delivery of service as a direct result of CARICAD’s in-country introduction of modern management systems and processes.

"We are not only seeking to improve public awareness of CARICAD, but also to promote better public understanding of issues directly related to our area of expertise, namely Public Sector Transformation and Modernisation" says Executive Director, Mrs. Jennifer Astaphan.

We hope that you find our site informative as we invite you to peruse the resources we offer to help our stakeholders with our collective efforts to improve the development and management of public policy.
