PASTURES, St. Vincent, Oct 29 2014 (IPS) - In the last three years, St. Vincent and the Grenadines has been forced to spend more than 600 million dollars to rebuild its battered infrastructure. Landslides in April 2011, followed by December 2013 floods that also affected Dominica and St. Lucia and left 13 people dead, may be just the beginning, as climate change brings more extreme weather events to the Caribbean.
The name of the game now is disaster risk reduction, as officials work with regional bodies and the European Union to build resiliance and adaptation measures against future storms.
