In an attempt to aid in the acceleration of the achievement of the SDG goals, a three-day conference entitled Caribbean Action 2030: Regional Conference on the Sustainable Development Goals was hosted in Jamaica between June 28th -30th, 2017 to forge commitment and a common understanding about the region’s way forward. One of the key objectives of the conference was to provide a forum where empirical evidence on human development in the Caribbean can be presented and discussed.  In achieving this objective the Caribbean Action 2030 Online Platform was developed.  

This platform provides the opportunity to continue discussion on the SDGs. This online platform is a long-term commitment to regional partnerships and efforts that will enable the academic community, civil society and policy makers to engage in on-going dialogue on the basis of evidence-based research, open data and exchange of good policy practice.
