Over the past 10 years, the Regional Bureau of Latin America and the Caribbean (RBLAC) of the United Nations Development Programme has introduced democratic dialogue processes to support development programming in Latin America and the Caribbean. This cross-institutional programme provides a platform to address complex societal problems and challenges that cannot be addressed  adequately, successfully, sustainably, legitimately or peacefully - by any single institution.

With assistance from UNDP Barbados, this Programme is being introduced to St. Kitts and Nevis. This year, UNDP will support a series of consultative workshops bringing together the nations leaders from the public and private sectors. A wide cross-section of stakeholders in St. Kitts and Nevis, a Caribbean Small Island Developing State, will have the opportunity to:
Ø Discuss critical development issues that result from globalization.
Ø Explore and examine fundamental development issues and their root-causes.
Ø Review issues of conflict and build capacity for dialogue that highlights leverage points for change.

Democratic dialogue is inclusive: people from different sectors, classes, hierarchies, parties, religions, generations, gender and cultures who normally work separately or even in opposition to one another come together to engage in dialogue processes and recommend solutions.

Democratic dialogue opens safe spaces for people to talk, listen to one another, build trust and transform relationships. The democratic dialogue process provides safe spaces for people to talk, listen to one another, build trust and transform relationships. Such conversations allow people to reach consensus and agreements by enabling them to build a shared understanding of problems, visualize their role and what must be done to address critical issues.

Finally, democratic dialogue is connected to action, as the participants emerge from the process with a shared sense of purpose, commitment to a common future, and agreed actionable points to bring the desired future into being.
