Capability Assessment Toolkit: A Toolkit to Assess the Capability of Trinidad and Tobago’s NPOs to deliver PCVE-specific Activities


Commonwealth Secretariat


The Commonwealth Secretariat’s Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) Unit works with member countries to develop, define and understand the phenomenon of violent extremism as it relates to
their specific context, and then to strategise, plan and act accordingly.
The CVE Unit believes in a ‘whole-of-society approach’ to effectively prevent and counter violent extremism and, since 2017, the CVE Unit has maintained a good working relationship with members of the Trinidad and Tobago Muslim and non-Muslim communities.
As a continuation of this work, the CVE Unit has commissioned the development of this Capability
Assessment Toolkit (CAT) to support departments of the Government of the Republic of Trinidad
and Tobago to prepare Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (PCVE) activity.
