The country is covered by the UNESCO Cluster Office in Kingston, Jamaica.

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is participating in one of the Sustainable Development in Coastal Regions and Small Islands (CSI) programme’s projects, which aims to develop in-country capabilities so that small islands of the Caribbean, often economically dependent on coastal tourism, can effectively manage their changing beach resources and plan for coastline change in a framework of integrated coastal management.

Another CSI project the country is involved in is Small Islands VOICE, an initiative that focuses on public participation. Small Islands Voice works with communities, specific interest groups and young people to build capacity so that islanders can effectively plan and implement their own vision of sustainable island living.
