By recent estimates, Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is one of the most vulnerable regions to extreme weather events—five of the top ten countries most affected by climate globally are in the LAC region. The work that is being done to reconstruct entire nations and strengthen resilience, particularly in the Caribbean, is continuous. Efforts to mainstream resilience across development sectors are making significant progress, with ongoing country engagements broadening to include more in-depth policy reforms, as well as innovative applications of solutions for safer housing, insurance, quality infrastructure, and more resilient cities.
