Strengthening resilience and coping capacities in the Caribbean through integrated early warning systems

Source(s):  United Nations Development Programme - Regional Centre for Latin America and Caribbean (UNDP - Regional Cent)

The project ‘Strengthening resilience and coping capacities in the Caribbean through integrated early warning systems’ was aimed at reducing the vulnerability of communities facing multiple hazard risks in Caribbean small islands. This goal was achieved by helping communities become better informed about risks and their vulnerabilities. In order to improve communities' knowledge, practitioners implemented a system to allow automated receipt of hazard notifications and dissemination of alerts via an integrated Common Alerting Protocol based on a multi-hazard early warning system (CAP EWS).

Implemented between May 2015 and February 2017, the project was well designed but it could not achieve the objective of obtaining commitments from other Caribbean countries regarding implementation of CAP EWS. Consequently, the report makes six recommendations to guide similar future projects.
