Biodiversity Without Borders
The Caribbean Biological Corridor (CBC), an initiative spearheaded by the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Haiti, with the support of international cooperation agencies, offers an opportunity for joint projects that will benefit biodiversity not only within their own borders, but in the Caribbean region as a whole.

“Given the experience of Cuba, the difficult situation in Haiti and the interest shown by the Dominican Republic, we could say that this partnership among the three sister nations is a prime example of what can be done to promote the conservation of natural resources,” he said.

Reyna says that Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe and Martinique have expressed interest in participating in the process as observers and guests, and could eventually join in as full partners in the biological corridor, which serves as a sort of umbrella initiative for “practical action” projects.
