COCONUT Industry Development for the Caribbean (CIDC) has been spread out across eleven countries across the Caribbean and Guyana is one of them. The project started since 2015 and it is now in its final year for the first phase. It spans marketing, production and productivity, advisory, mitigation and other services.
The project is being financed by the European Union (EU) and the Africa, Caribbean and the Pacific Group of States (ACP). The International Trade Centre (ITC) is the chief administrator for the project across the Caribbean, with its implementing partner being CARDI.
