US-Caribbean Resilience Partnership working group meets for first time

On October 23-24, the inaugural meeting of the US-Caribbean Resilience Partnership working group will take place in Barbados. The meeting will bring together 18 Caribbean countries, the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, the Regional Security System, international donors, and non-governmental partners, including universities and the private sector.

The working group will assess disaster resilience needs and proposed next steps to better coordinate efforts.

The United States is providing $1.5 million to increase disaster preparedness and resilience under the US-Caribbean Resilience Partnership. The partnership aims to strengthen US-Caribbean cooperation and advance greater resilience to withstand the impacts of climate change, natural disasters, and extreme weather. The funding will support technical exchanges and consultations between US interagency resilience experts, ministries, and disaster management officials from the Caribbean region.
