Hurricane Sandy passed through the Caribbean in October 2012, affecting three CCRIF member countries – Haiti, Jamaica and The Bahamas, although not to the extent of triggering their tropical cyclone policies.

In 2009, the Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility (CCRIF) launched its Technical Assistance Programme. This Programme consists of three components and is designed to provide an ongoing mechanism for grant support within the Caribbean region for capacity building initiatives and the development and implementation of projects which have a strong potential for improving the effectiveness of risk management. The Programme aims to help Caribbean countries deepen their understanding of natural hazards and catastrophe risk, and the potential impacts of climate change on the region.

The critical United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Copenhagen in December 2009 is the last opportunity for the governments of the world to formulate a new protocol to address climate change before the Kyoto Protocol ends in 2012. The changing climate is a global driver of increasing disaster risk and threatens to undermine the critical development gains made by the most vulnerable countries, including small island developing states such as those in the Caribbean.
