Belize Co-management Project
In December 2000, ICC successfully completed a three-year project in partnership with the Maya and Garifuna of Belize. The project included the establishment of a training institute (BITI), which provides training and services in the areas of community economic development and capacity-building. BITI has now reached a high level of self-sufficiency and is being viewed as a possible model for other regions in the Caribbean and Latin America. We are grateful to the Danish Foreign Ministry, the International Labour Office, and the United Nations Program for their support.
