Integrated physical adaptation and community resilience through an enhanced direct access pilot in the public, private, and civil society sectors of three Eastern Caribbean small island developing states

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) such as Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and Grenada are facing challenges to adapt to climate change-related threats such as more intense hurricanes, higher temperatures, and lower overall rainfall. This project acquires small grants for community organizations, together with revolving loans for households and businesses which will improve the resilience of infrastructure to withstand category 5 hurricanes. A funding mechanism for public infrastructure (including drainage and irrigation) and ecosystems will also reduce disruptions in the water system and improve soil and water conservation, which are all threatened by the results of climate change.
