Why Resilience ?


Why resilience ?   The Caribbean region is subject to recurrent natural disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides, and droughts – made worse climate change combined with vulnerable economies. The capacity to cope with these extreme events is limited for most OCTs so there is a need to: • reduce structural vulnerability • increase the resilience of economic infrastructure and fragile coastal ecosystems to extreme recurrent natural events. Support to resilience at all levels is also an integral part of the new 2017 European Consensus on Development.
