Fourteen team leaders from disaster risk-reduction projects in four Caribbean countries recently got hands-on training with an online information system – to boost their monitoring and evaluation capacity.

According to the Jamaica Gleaner Newspaper, the projects, which are being implemented under the Caribbean Disaster Risk Reduction Fund in Jamaica, the British Virgin Islands, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Belize, aim to reduce risk and build community resilience to adapt to climate change and disasters.

CDRRF is managed by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and supported with funding from the European Union and the government of Canada.

This recent training follows last November’s global information system mapping sessions at which community groups were introduced to community climate vulnerability assessments and the Rapid Community Climate Vulnerability Assessment tool-kit.
