Description and results


The Canada-Caribbean Resilience Facility aims to support Caribbean countries—including Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Suriname—to strengthen their long-term resilience and build back better in the wake of natural disasters. It seeks to mobilize a multi-disciplinary “rapid response” team of local and international experts to provide technical assistance and capacity-building for recovery and reconstruction in such diverse fields as disaster risk management, engineering, environmental management, environmental and social safeguards, gender equality, disability inclusion, procurement, and public financial management. It also supports governments to identify, access, and mobilize emergency funding to ensure timely financing of recovery activities and put in place public financial management systems, protocols, and guidelines that can be triggered in the event of natural disaster. Project activities include: 1) developing preparedness and recovery capacity assessments for sectors most affected during disasters, including housing and transport; 2) providing hands-on technical assistance support and training in areas critical to recovery and reconstruction such as project management and procurement; and 3) preparing guidelines to streamline budgeting protocols in post-disaster situations.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: 1) more effective and coordinated gender-responsive climate-resilient recovery in targeted Caribbean countries following natural disasters; and 2) more effective gender-responsive and climate-resilient public financial management practices of national governments.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of May 2022 include: (1) developed five preparedness and recovery capacity assessment reports; (2) developed 28 gender-responsive instruments available for use in resilient and inclusive projects; (3) trained 102 staff on instruments; (4) supported 26 government projects across eight countries and seven projects in the regional body; (5) developed ten tools to help public agencies better manage projects; and (6) trained 59 staff on these tools.
