Caribbean nations should develop strategy to create resilience to natural disasters

Calling for a resilient Caribbean: "Not only is a resilient economy less affected by natural disasters, it is also more dynamic, as it incentivizes greater private investment, reduces outward migration, increases output and, eventually, lowers the need for financial protection and related costs."

Fortunately Virgin Unite's Caribbean Climate-Smart Accelerator is focused on boosting the region's resiliency.

The Caribbean’s vulnerability to natural disasters shows that preparedness is key and no longer a matter of choice.

The power of community was elevated after Hurricane Irma hit the Virgin Islands. Dr. Sauda Smith, the Executive Director of Unite BVI Foundation, was removing debris from her yard when she was approached by a young boy seeking help. Islands Elevated's Dear World producer said that hearing survivors' stories gave her a "deeper understanding of what community really is".

Small acts make a big impact! "When Australia's two largest supermarket chains banned plastic bags three months ago, The Guardian reports, it led to an 80 percent reduction in the country's overall consumption of plastic bags."

My Brother's Workshop Executive Director eloquently reflects upon the days immediately after #hurricaneirma hit the #virginislands.

"I remember the days after Irma as some of the darkest times of my life and for many others, it was worse. Isabella and Joaquin are my two kids that went through this experience as well. I remember crying as I realized that our reality had changed. I remember crying as we saw our loss of possessions.......but out of this darkness and out of this fear and loss came hope. As MBW started to feed thousands and deliver packages and rebuild homes, I saw frustration and pain turn to strength and hope. It was a terrible time, but I was blessed as well. As I continue on my path, I hope that I can face change with strength and hope."

The Entrepreneurial Spirit Is Alive And Well In The Hurricane-Battered British Virgin Islands

Proud of the successes that Islands Elevated beneficiary Virgin Unite have made in the Caribbean in the last 14 months.

“Two of our foundations, Virgin Unite and Unite BVI Foundation, have been working in the region to support recovery and I’ve been amazed by the work being done by everyone already,” Richard Branson says. “To help boost entrepreneurship we are supporting a trade-skill development programme through the local community college, focusing on construction and maritime, which aims to provide hundreds of jobs and at least 70 apprenticeships.”

'United we stand, divided we fall' embodies the spirit of unity and determination among entrepreneurs rebuilding their businesses in the the hurricane-battered Carribbean

Creating a blueprint for the electric grid of the future

Proud of the green & resilient solutions that Virgin Unite & Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) have created for the Caribbean.

“RMI worked with island governments and utilities to leapfrog ahead with energy systems that will make the Caribbean region far less vulnerable to future storms.”

During last year’s hurricane season, Rocky Mountain Institute’s (RMI’s) Islands Energy Programme issued a call to action – focusing on rebuilding a resilient and renewable future for Caribbean islands. Instead of investing capital into reconstructing the existing electricity grid (based on ...
