Published date 2010-09-01

From the report:

The criteria for the compilation of success stories in this publication includes: (a) some results have already been achieved; (b) more than one country has been involved; (c) stakeholders at the national level have taken ownership of the activities carried out or of their results. Based on these criteria, and given the time-frame available, 15 success stories have been reflected. These success stories are meant to be illustrative rather than comprehensive of all the efforts undertaken by SIDS during the recent years, and present a deliberately ample spectrum of activities, differing among each other in scope and focus.

  • Caribbean Human Development Report on Citizen Security
  • Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility (CCRIF)
