This set of policy briefs has the objective of profiling disaster risk management (DRM) policies in five selected member States of the Caribbean Development and Cooperation Committee: Barbados, Guyana, Saint Lucia, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. The present publication is the second that ECLAC has released on the mainstreaming of DRM strategies on this topic area. In 2017, a similar document was published for the following countries: The Bahamas, Belize, Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica. It also aims at analysing these policies and their interactions with broader development issues and instruments such as national development plans and climate change adaptation strategies.
