Port of Spain, January 7, 2022 – CANARI is pleased to announce that under the Inter-American Foundation-funded CSOs for Disaster Resilience project (2019-2022), six partner civil society organisations (CSOs) in Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and Grenada have been awarded small grants and will be rolling out pilot practical action projects over the next few months, aimed at addressing local resilience challenges in six target high-risk communities across the project countries.

Recognising the critical importance of both people and nature in building resilience, the projects will focus on using integrated community-based and ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction (CBDRR/Eco-DRR) approaches to help build resilience for local communities, associated livelihoods and ecosystems, particularly as it relates to impacts from hurricanes and other climate-related hazards.
