    Addressing Disaster Risk Management in Caribbean Agriculture 2015
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Natural disasters such as drought, hurricanes, earthquakes and floods have had devastating impacts on Caribbean economies and livelihoods over the last decade. The active hurricane season of 2004 resulted in damages in the Caribbean amounting to USD 3.1 billion1, with catastrophic impacts on the gross domestic product (GDP) of member countries, particularly in Grenada (estimated at 200 percent of GDP2). These shocks have serious macroeconomic effects which have increased the incidence of poverty and which could even lead to economic crises in the country. The Agriculture Sector in particular, has been severely affected, by these weatherrelated and seismic events. Consequently, the region’s food and nutrition security has been impacted. These impacts include, inter alia, loss of crops and livestock, reduced agricultural productivity, malnutrition, forest fires, destruction of housing for livestock, increased migration of fish from the region, high food prices and loss of livelihoods of affected farmers and fisherfolk.

    DRM Webinar III: Benefits of farm-level disaster risk reduction practices in agriculture
    Webinar report - 20 July 2017

    Over the past decade, economic damages resulting from natural hazards have amounted to USD 1.5 trillion caused by geophysical hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis and landslides, as well as hydro-meteorological hazards, including storms, floods, droughts and wild fires. Climate-related disasters, in particular, are increasing worldwide and expected to intensify with climate change. They disproportionately affect food insecure, poor people – over 75 percent of whom derive their livelihoods from agriculture. Agricultural livelihoods can only be protected from multiple hazards if adequate disaster risk reduction and management efforts are strengthened within and across sectors, anchored in the context-specific needs of local livelihoods systems.
