Summary

The Canada Caribbean Disaster Risk Management Fund (CCDRMF) is one component of Global Affairs Canada’s (GAC), previously the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD), larger regional Caribbean Disaster Risk Management Program. The CCDRMF is a competitive fund which is designed to support community-driven projects that seek to enhance the resilience of communities and reduce risks from natural hazards (e.g. floods, droughts, tropical storms, hurricanes) and climate change.

Established in 2008 as a CAD $3.0 M small grant facility, the CCDRMF finances projects ranging from CAD $25,000 to CAD $75,000, and up to CAD $100,000 in exceptional cases. The targeted audience is community-based organisations, non-governmental organisations, civil-society organisations, and government agencies wishing to undertake community projects in the following beneficiary countries: Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.

For the purposes of the CCDRMF, a ‘community’ is defined as ‘a group of people living in the same geographical area (such as a neighbourhood, district, city or town)’ or ‘a group of people with similar interests (such as youth and women) or livelihoods (such as farmers or fishers)’.
