The Caribbean Capacity Building Programme is a long-term training programme, implemented by the UNESCO Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean, based in Havana (Cuba), in close coordination with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the UNESCO Offices in Kingston (Jamaica) and Port-au-Prince (Haiti). Its implementation began in 2004, and the Programme has since produced a number of training modules and organised a number of training courses.
