Disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation: Pathways for sustainable development and policy coherence in the Caribbean region through comprehensive risk management
UNDRR Regional Office for the Americas and the Caribbean, in partnership with the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), have conducted a study on the degree of coherence between national policies and plans focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), DRR and CCA in the Caribbean Region. This regional analysis aimed at enhancing our understanding of the level of and approaches to coherence of planning and policy implementation mechanisms in countries across the Caribbean Region.
The analysis indicates that all sixteen selected Caribbean countries have achieved an overall partial degree of coherence between sustainable development, CCA, and DRR policies, strategies, and plans.
Some of the key recommendations to strengthen coherence in the Caribbean region:
- Promote the implementation of the SFDRR, PA and SDGs, as well as existing regional agreements and decisions related to DRR, CCA, and sustainable development.
- Strengthen political will and commitment to enhance regional cooperation and collaboration amongst member countries, and engagement with all stakeholders.
- Strengthen engagement with marginalised populations and support community-based resilience building initiatives and social protection schemes for those most vulnerable to climate and disaster risks.
- Promote inclusion, gender equality and social justice throughout the design, planning and implementation of regional and national efforts to reduce risk.
- Strengthen institutional and policy frameworks at the regional level and further enhance coordination and collaboration between member countries. •
- Support regional exchange of information, data, methods, tool
