Belize, Grenada, Jamaica and Saint Lucia: Reports on advancing disaster risk financing strategies in the Caribbean

DRFTA

Four reports on recommendations for advancing national disaster risk financing strategies for Belize, Grenada, Jamaica and Saint Lucia were published in the frame of the Caribbean Disaster Risk Financing Technical Assistance (DRFTA) project. Launched in May 2015 and implemented by the WB, the project has the objective of increasing fiscal resilience by supporting the governments of Belize, Grenada, Jamaica and Saint Lucia to build technical and institutional capacity in disaster risk finance. 
The four reports aim to propose potential considerations for the formulation of a country-specific comprehensive disaster risk finance strategy to the governments of Saint Lucia, Belize, Grenada and Jamaica. They are based on the assessment of the legislative, financial management, fiscal, and insurance market environment of the respective countries. The potential development of a comprehensive disaster risk finance strategy would equip the Ministry of Finance of the respective four countries with information and instruments to manage contingent liabilities posed by natural disasters.
