The Caribbean Development and Cooperation Committee (CDCC) was created as a permanent subsidiary body to function within the structure of the Commission and promote development cooperation among Caribbean countries by Resolution E/CEPAL/989/Rev.1

The objectives of CDCC are:

  • To promote and strengthen economic and social cooperation and integration among the countries of the Caribbean and with Latin America.
  • To promote the sharing of information and experiences among its membership.
  • To promote common positions and strategies on economic and social issues among Caribbean nations, and on their relations with third countries, and to present those positions to international forums and agencies.
