Support to Early Recovery in Turks and Caicos Islands

This support to the Turks and Caicos Islands in the wake of two category five hurricanes in September 2017 provides for  Climate and Disaster Risk Coordination, along with the development of a Recovery Mechanism, for Turks and Caicos Islands.

This specifically entails direct support to affected residents via cash for work clean up programmes for hurricne debris removal, as well as hurricane recovery grants for the Medium, Small and Micro Enterprises. The project is also supporting a social and economic impact analysis of hurricanes; a debris and waste management plan; capacity building for government and MSME in minimizing disaster risk and quicker recovery for the future; development of innovative financial products that will make it easier to support reconstruction and recovery in the future
