Current Strategic Plan

CCRIF Strategic Plan 2018-2021 CCRIF Strategic Plan 2018-2021

The CCRIF Strategic Plan 2018 – 2021 is being implemented during a period in which CARICOM has declared its bold ambition to make the Caribbean the first climate-resilient zone in the world. CCRIF wishes to play its part in helping our region realize this stated ambition. Thus, as CCRIF enters its second decade of operations, additional financing and capital injection will be required to support growth and to facilitate scaling up – that is increasing coverage levels amongst existing members, adding new members and offering new products.

Current Annual Report

CCRIF SPC Annual Report 2020 - 2021 CCRIF SPC Annual Report 2020 - 2021

Today, our member governments continue to grapple with both domestic and external challenges. From as early as the first quarter in January 2020, the Board and Management Team of CCRIF began to strategize and create
scenarios on the possible impacts of the pandemic. This allowed us to quickly pivot and agree on our approach to support our member governments. We also began engaging with our development partners to determine how
they too would help us to support our member governments. We remained cognizant of the multi-hazard environment in which we exist, and which would be further impacted by the pandemic. We are pleased that we did not for a minute pause and were able to secure funding in excess of US$30 million to support our member governments with their premiums for policy years 2020/21 and 2021/22 or to opt for purchasing increased coverage given the uncertainties that are associated with the changing climate.

Booklet - CCRIF SPC Hazards, Disasters & Climate Change for Primary Level Kids Booklet - CCRIF SPC Hazards, Disasters & Climate Change for Primary Level Kids

A fun and interactive booklet for us kids to better understand natural hazards, disasters and climate change
and our roles in #preparing, #keepingsafe and #sharing information with our #friends and #family and #community

The booklet was developed as part of an initiative responding to requests from some of our stakeholders to become more involved in disaster risk reduction (DRR) activities “on the ground” and specifically to develop a disaster risk reduction programme in schools that would inculcate a culture of resilience and safety in our children. CCRIF always seeks to meet the needs of its member countries and consequently we have developed a Regional Disaster Risk Education and Communications Programme, which includes support for formal DRR community education, DRR programmes in schools and DRR communications for the general public.
