Upgrading community infrastructure to provide critical resources and services during emergencies and year-round
People in the Caribbean, particularly women, youth, the elderly, children, and people with disabilities, are living through some of the most extreme impacts of climate change. Catastrophic and volatile weather events occur more frequently than ever, threatening lives and livelihoods. Through its resilience hub model, Mercy Corps will collaborate with local partners to upgrade existing community infrastructure to provide critical resources and services for vulnerable communities facing hazards. Resilience hubs will deliver health and social services during emergencies year-round and help over three million people meet basic needs and sustain their livelihoods. The project will support four new Caribbean geographies, laying a foundation for expanding the model across the region.
