This video was created to educate communities in the Caribbean about disaster risk management measures that can be taken to prepare for natural disasters. Along with mitigation activities, the video shows the role insurance can play as part of a comprehensive disaster risk management strategy and how it can help vulnerable groups become more resilient to extreme weather events like hurricanes and excess rainfall. The video, which was created for use throughout the Caribbean, is currently available in English and has first been translated for the Jamaican market into the local language – Jamaican Patois. Other translations are intended to follow. The CRAIC project’s UN Volunteers use these videos when they host community meetings as a way to start the conversation on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and to introduce the Livelihood Protection Policy (LPP).
