As a region that has its share of disasters, we share the pain of the people in the Caribbean, when the category-5 Hurricane Irma went through the Caribbean, and made its first landfall in the north-east Caribbean islands on Wednesday, 6th September 2017.

The Caribbean is vulnerable to multiple natural hazards, including hurricanes, floods and earthquakes. The education sector is particularly vulnerable, and over the last two decades, this sector has suffered major damage and losses due to the impact of natural hazards. The frequency and intensity of these events are projected to increase as a result of climate change, thereby posing greater threats to the education sector.
