This report presents a study on the cost benefit analyses and cost effectiveness analysis of community-based disaster risk reduction (DRR) interventions in the Caribbean. The DRR interventions, implemented by the International Federation of Red Cross, Port of Spain, in three Caribbean countries, Jamaica, Antigua & Barbuda, and Suriname, comprised the pilot phase of the Red Cross project, Improving Climate Change Resilience of Caribbean Communities. This study is part of the endeavor by the DRR Program of Florida International University and the United States Agency for International Development’s Office of the U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance to develop and foster DRR measures in the Latin American and Caribbean region since 2008.
