On Wednesday 30 November 2022, a Legislative Advocacy Training is being held for members of the Resilient Islands Project Technical Committee on Policy and other stakeholders.

The Resilient Islands project is a four-year initiative being implemented by The Nature Conservancy and the IFRC to help Caribbean Islands cope with the impacts of climate change by promoting and empowering governments, partners and communities to implement sustainable development plans and prioritize nature to reduce risks.

The Resilient Islands project is currently working in three countries - Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Grenada - to design innovative tools, train leaders and implement projects within vulnerable coastal communities.

The project seeks to strengthen disaster and climate change adaptation law and policy frameworks in target countries through developing strategies for advocating to the public authorities for necessary legal and policy reforms.
