    This document is an attempt to present an overview of the technological options that are currently available to promote increased productivity and competitiveness of the cassava crop. These options could become an excellent strategy for the difficult task faced by the countries in the region that need to reduce poverty, hunger and the increased dependency on imported foods to attend the nutritional needs of their populations. This document is divided into three parts. The first part summariz es relevant background information on the current status of cassava globally and in the context of the Caribbean region. Part two is a compilation of the information collected via a survey administered with the collaboration of key resource persons in most countries of the region. Data obtained was complemented with updated information collected and compiled with the support of the Statistics Department, FAO Rome; and with data provided by the cassava practicioners (research and extension agents ), from 12 countries, who attended an International Training event organized by CLAYUCA, with financial support from the Colombian Government. The third part includes some concrete examples of potential opportunities that could be implemented in the region, using a three-pillar approach that CLAYUCA has been proposing, that includes: a) improved genetic resources; b) eco-efficient crop and soil management technologies; and c) value-added processing and utilization technologies. Some conclusions and recommendatios are also included.
