Resilience to hurricanes in the building sector in Antigua and Barbuda

Resilience to hurricanes in the building sector in Antigua and Barbuda

Since 1995, Antigua and Barbuda have experienced 15 hurricanes and 14 tropical storms. Set to be exacerbated by climate change, such events can lead to significant disruption of the country's power and water supplies, as well as damaging communication and transport infrastructure.

This project addresses the resilience of building construction in the country, in addition to climate information systems and post-disaster responses. It will climate proof critical public service and community buildings to improve resilience to, and recovery from, extreme climate events. This timely initiative will also ensure that climate change adaptation is mainstreamed into the building sector and relevant financial mechanisms, as well as strengthening climate information services to allow for early action in responding to extreme climate events.
