This five-year CIDA-funded project began in 1997.  It links CERLAC/York University with the University of the Autonomous Regions of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua (URACCAN). 

The main goals of the project are: 

    * to strengthen URACCAN's capacity to develop the human resources of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua, in order to meet the region's needs in the areas of poverty alleviation, sustainable development, and community development; and 

    * to strengthen the knowledge-base and research capacities of York University and CERLAC with regard to the developmental and socio-cultural issues of the region.

CERLAC administers the project in collaboration with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC).
