Strengthening the resilience of three Caribbean islands to climate change-related threats by improving the hurricane resilience of community buildings, homes, and businesses, and through flood prevention measures.

Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and Grenada are three Small Island Developing States facing challenges to adapt to climate change-related threats such as more intense hurricanes, higher temperatures, and lower overall rainfall. Small grants for community organizations, together with revolving loans for households and businesses, will improve the resilience of infrastructure to withstand category 5 hurricanes. A funding mechanism for public infrastructure (including drainage and irrigation) and ecosystems will also reduce disruptions in the water system and improve soil and water conservation, which are all threatened by the results of climate change.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 4 years.
