The Belize Red Cross (BRC) gave a wide-ranging presentation aboutBuilding Resilience in Communities and Disaster Risk Reduction with a focus on Climate Change to staff members of the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre’s (CCCCC) this week (November 6, 2013).

International Federation of the Red Cross Disaster Management Officer Pria Rai introduced the new Caribbean Climate Change Adaptation (3CA) Toolkit, which includes tools designed to facilitate:

  • Implementing a Climate Change/ Disaster Risk Reduction (CC/DRR) programme 
  • Training in the 3CA methodology
  • Communicating climate change 
  • Pre-designed tools to collect data at the community level 
  • Linking secondary sources of information for validation of data/information collected from community members using other Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (VCA) tools-analytical  tools 
  • presenting information quickly, while ensuring that relevant data is collected, and in a manner that is easily understood by community members which will reduce the time it takes to analyze data

The BRC and the Centre have long collaborated in areas such as VCAs for Belize and the wider Caribbean.
