Climate change and disasters, such as the two unprecedented Category 5 Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017, are a critical and ever-increasing challenge for Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Building the resilience of local communities, their livelihoods and the natural ecosystems upon which they depend has therefore become an integral part of CANARI’s work. As we mark ten years of CANARI’s Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Programme, it is important to reflect on our achievements and lessons learned.
