Across the Caribbean the transport sector is increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and natural hazards.
This project demonstrated how gender-sensitive climate and disaster resilience measures can be integrated into the road transport sector. Building on existing methods and tools, work was successfully carried out in Saint Lucia, Guyana, and Dominica on the following tasks:
The project delivered a series of awareness and training workshops to build the capacity of the Caribbean region on roads sector resilience assessment and climate resilience integration. These were aimed to members of parliament and officials from all the borrowing member countries of the Caribbean Development Bank as well as Bank staff.
The project developed a package of planning tools and guidance resources for institutions responsible for road transport policies and plans, and the implementation of investment programs, to assess and design effective climate resilient actions.
DT Global developed a package of materials to provide guidance, lessons learnt and technical notes to help practitioners and borrowing member countries in the region to roll-out our methodologies to other similar contexts. The workbook can be used for other borrowing member countries to lead a stakeholder participation process to measure the resilience of their transport networks as well as the capacity of their governments to take on board climate change principles. The final report for this project is here.
