To address threats and strains on growth and stability, Jamaica must become a more cohesive and inclusive country. Social cohesion is a driving force for political change and a mechanism that consolidates democratic values into social institutions, thereby strengthening government, public, and private sectors while building confidence among citizenry in their country’s ability to thrive.
(Kingston, Jamaica – Oct. 1, 2012) – INMED Caribbean, the local not-for-profit affiliate of INMED Partnerships for Children in the United States, organized a Farm-to-Table event at Pantrepant Farm in Trelawny to benefit the Jamaican Adaptive Agriculture Program (JAAP). Through a cooperative agreement with the United States for International Development (USAID), the program is creating a sustainable form of agricultural microenterprise that conserves natural resources and adapts to climate change threats.
