FAQ

Should governments consider other financing mechanisms as part of their disaster management framework or is CCRIF enough?

CCRIF’s policies do not obviate the need for Caribbean governments to continue to invest in mitigation activities and in other financing mechanisms to cover relatively small losses that occur more frequently, such as flash floods, tropical storms and heavy rainfall. CCRIF provides a cost-effective solution for just one part of the larger comprehensive disaster management (CDM) process.

Wouldn’t Caribbean governments better serve their constituents...

The Facility does not obviate the need for Caribbean governments to set up a National Disaster Fund. Those funds will be useful in recovery efforts in more frequent events ― flash floods, tropical storms, heavy rainfall ― which do not cause catastrophic loss, but do impact on the smooth and effective operation of a country. One of the main issues Caribbean governments must contend with is properly budgeting for each fiscal year; natural disasters, which are inevitable, must be properly planned for if economic targets such as GDP growth are to be met.

Are there any publications that could enhance understanding of CCRIF?

Over the last year, CCRIF has put together documents and articles aimed at improving our communication to members and stakeholders as well as for our own governance and accountability requirements. Some of these documents include:

English

Triggering Event

Tropical Cyclone: Any Tropical Cyclone event which produces a modelled government loss of greater
than zero in one or more countries.

Earthquake: Any earthquake event which produces a modelled government loss of greater than zero in
one or more countries.

Triggering events are summarised in specific CCRIF Event Briefings for each hazard event that occurs,
which are circulated to all stakeholders and which are available on the CCRIF web site – www.ccrif.org
