CDB providing grants for community-based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation projects

Source(s):  Anguilla News - Spice Media Group

The Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) has launched a USD 23.5 million dollar fund which will provide grants to vulnerable communities for community-based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation demonstration projects in all of CDB’s Borrowing Member Countries except Haiti

“Although extreme natural hazard events such as hurricanes, storms, droughts and climate change effects such as sea-level rise may affect an entire country, in the final analysis, all disasters are local phenomena. This means that disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation must, by definition, be a fundamentally local affair”, CDB’s Project Manager for the Disaster Risk Reduction Fund, Leslie Walling told Anquilla News.
