Research is the foundation on which sustainable, equitable community development is built. The research component of our work is built on the premise of participatory and inclusive development processes. Rigid data management strategies, ensure the accuracy and quality of information to be placed at the centre of national planning.
We use sports as a unifying force and as a means of igniting the energies of the youth. Broad participation in sports programmes and projects is just one component of our wider policy for social development. The Commission uses Jamaicans’ love for sports as an exciting springboard for many young people to get involved in community development.
We take our cue from the Government of Jamaica’s policy framework for economic growth, social development, public sector reform and poverty reduction. We are mandated to facilitate the building and strengthening of civil society mechanisms and structures which enable citizen participation in Jamaica’s development processes.
