United Nations Offices in the Caribbean

The United Nations family is spread across a number of Caribbean States to maximise outreach and assistance to governments and the peoples of the Caribbean.

Resident Offices - are offices that are physically located in a country (known as host country).

Country Teams - refers to the collective of those UN Resident Offices and Special Programmes in any particular country.It also includes UN offices that may not be physically located in the host country; but includes that member state as part of its area of responsibility (AOR).  While each office, agency or programme has its individual mandate, all Resident Offices in a country work together to deliver common goals for example Human Rights, Climate Change and so on. Collaborations or joint activities are often conducted  between two or more offices- in the UN System we refer to this as part of our "Delivering as One" initiative. A Resident Coordinator for Operational Activities (Resident Representative) is assigned the responsibility of facilitating, coordinating and advancing the cause of team-work among resident offices, so that the host country or area of responsibility gets the best value for money and highest possible quality of service from the United Nations.

There are Five (6) country teams in the English and Dutch Speaking Caribbean:


The UNIC is a member of all six teams but resident in Trinidad and Tobago
