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.

In the 2010 Index of Social Cohesion, Jamaica ranked 56th, behind Cuba and El Salvador.
