Mainstreaming von Klimawandel im karibischen Disaster Risk Management (Phase 2)
The Comprehensive Disaster Management Strategy and Framework adopted by CARICOM in 2008 emphasizes the inextricable link between disasters and development and emphasizes the critical importance of integrating disaster risk reduction into development planning and decision-making. CDEMA is a specialized regional disaster management agency established and supported by Caribbean Governments and mandated to implement this framework.
The purpose of this project is to enhance the resilience in the 18 CDEMA partner states (Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, St. Kitts/Nevis, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos Islands, Virgin Islands) to respond to the effects of climate change and natural disasters through practical planning and adaptation interventions at the national and community levels. Phase 2 will focus on strengthening national capacity for climate change adaptation in the CDEMA partner states through integration of climate change considerations into their national Disaster Management work programmes (climate smarting), and supporting the adoption of community level awareness & capacity building tools developed in the first phase of the project.
Expected results are:
Result 1: National level institutional capacity for integration of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction is strengthened in all CDEMA partner states through climate smarting of country work programmes.
Result 2: "Climate Smarting" is advanced in five communities in the partner states with the support of the Civil Society Committee.
Results will be acheived through support to National Disaster Coordination Offices and other national stakeholders, as well as community level consultations and trainings.
Direct target beneficiaries are 13 persons of national agencies and approx. 250 residents of 5 communities; indirect beneficiaries are 28 Mio persons of the region.
