i-icon World Bank Income Classification:Low Income The World Bank classifies economies for analytical purposes into four income groups: low, lower-middle, upper-middle, and high income. For this purpose it uses gross national income (GNI) per capita data in U.S. dollars, converted from local currency using the World Bank Atlas method, which is applied to smooth exchange rate fluctuations. i-icon Least Developed Country:Yes Since 1971, the United Nations has recognized LDCs as a category of States that are deemed highly disadvantaged in their development process, for structural, historical and also geographical reasons. Three criteria are used: per capita income, human assets, and economic vulnerability. i-icon Gender Inequality Index:0.575 GII is a composite metric of gender inequality using three dimensions: reproductive health, empowerment and the labour market. A low GII value indicates low inequality between women and men, and vice-versa. i-icon Gender Development Index:0.723 GDI measures gender inequalities in achievement in three basic dimensions of human development: health, education, and command over economic resources.

More productive and competitive business ecosystems designed to improve people’s standards of living (MSCDF Outcome 1)

Under the UN Joint Programme (JP) supported by the UN Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS), "Building Effective Resilience for Human Security in the Caribbean Countries: The Imperative of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment in a Strengthened Agriculture (and related Agri/Fisheries Small Business) Sector, UN Women has lead the collaboration to deliver an integrated programme aimed at informing and advance developments within the agriculture and fisheries sectors aimed primarily for women and youth towards achieving the following outcomes: Outcome 1: Gender responsive and disaster risk resilient agricultural, fisheries and small business extension services, programmes, and techniques available and accessible to the most marginalized; Outcome 2: Gender responsive social protection, insurance and financial products are available and accessible to marginalized and impoverished groups (specific emphasis will be placed on women headed households with high dependency ratios, women in agriculture (fisherfolk) and unemployed young men); Outcome 3: Increased market access readiness and resilience for smallholder farmers and agriculture related small business; Outcome 4: Community resilience is strengthened through advocacy and community engagement with farmers, fisherfolks and young people to engage in agriculture and the blue economy; Outcome 5: Integration and Mainstreaming of the Human Security Approach. UN Women led the completion of key knowledge products and supported dialogue through strategic forums, to inform decision makers, and programme planners and beneficiaries, of critical considerations aimed at increasing awareness and transformational development towards a greater understanding of how gender equality and human security impact on women's economic empowerment within this sector and ultimately of the key considerations for enabling greater economic viability, resilience and sustainability of women, girls and youth. Increasing knowledge and access to information and services: How-to-Guide for Women Farmers and Small Businesses Entrepreneurs on Land and Small Business Registration Advocacy tools: The link of Gender Equality, Women’s Empowerment & Human Security Toolkits for Parliamentarians and other decision makers hosted on the ParlAmericas website as ParlGender Tools : Structural Adjustment Programmes: Integrating Gender Equality and Human Security and Agricultural Policy: Integrating Gender Equality and Human Security Additonal KPs are under development and will be completed in 2023. In addition, the KPs produced will contribute to the creation of content to inform the creation of digital Help Desks, liking benificaries with greater access to information and providing agricultural extension officers and business coaches with an additional tool by which to engage with small holder farmers and agricultural entrepreneurs and provide them with information, tools and resources in real time, hence increasing their access to information and ultimate uptake of opportunities for business growth and development through new market opportunites and financial stability. In 2022 two programmes were started with the view to increased and sustainable financing for GEWE in the Caribbean. UN Women MCO received funding from the SDG Fund to implement a programme, 'Building Back Equal through Innovative Financing for Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment' in the Bahamas and Bermuda and the Government of Canada funded, 'Build Back Equal' programme in Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia and St Vincent and the Grenadines. Due to internal and external delays there have not yet been many activities implemented under this programme however, in July 2022 the MCO hosted a Training for Gender Lens Investing for Fund Managers with the view to increased and sustainable financing for GEWE in the Caribbean. In 2023 additional activities will be implemented in order to satisfy this indicator.
