Caribbean Spectrum Management Harmonization Project

Project No CALL-14
Title Caribbean Spectrum Management Harmonization Project
Description The “Caribbean Spectrum Management Harmonization Project” aims to strengthen Caribbean countries among the ACP Group of States in the field of frequency planning and assignments, spectrum management and radio monitoring by fostering regional cooperation through the development and implementation of harmonized policies and practices for spectrum management, the establishment of national spectrum management system by means of advanced quasi automated system and human and institutional capacity building in this field.
The project will address the regulatory and technical challenges facing the beneficiary countries in the field of Spectrum Management with the goal of promoting a common, fair, transparent, stable, predictable and non-discriminatory enabling environment to foster technological and services innovation and encourage investment incentives.
The project will (a) prepare, in close collaboration with regional organizations (eg. CTU, CDEMA, CBU, OOCUR) and respective countries, guidelines for harmonized policies, legislation and regulatory framework, (b) develop National and Regional Frequency Allocation Tables (NFAT and RFAT), (c) provide direct assistance to countries in the establishment of National Spectrum Management System, setting up borderline frequency coordination mechanism and (d) develop regional expertise through capacity building expertise.
This project, which builds on initiatives undertaken in the region, in particular by the Caribbean Telecommunication Union (CTU), is complementary to the ITU-EC “Enhancing competitiveness in the Caribbean through the harmonization of ICT Policies, Legislation and Regulatory Procedures” (HIPCAR) project.
