Challenge

Hurricane Irma devastated the Caribbean island of Barbuda, when 185 mph winds destroyed the majority of homes and buildings. The hurricane also destroyed important infrastructure including power lines, telecommunications towers, the hospital, and the airport, temporarily displacing all 1,500 residents of Barbuda. Financial support is urgently needed to clean-up, restore basic infrastructure and start rebuilding Barbuda so that Barbudans can return home to their island.

Solution

Donations to the Barbuda Resilience Fund will help rebuild Barbuda. ICF is working closely with the Waitt Institute, local government and international aid organizations to provide the most effective aid that will allow the people of Barbuda to return home and rebuild their livelihoods. Donations will be used to provide emergency housing, food, and supplies; transportation, living expenses and daily wages for local workers involved in recovery efforts; and long-term restoration.

Long-Term Impact

The project will help clean-up and restore housing and infrastructure on Barbuda, allowing the island's 1,500 residents to return home and rebuild their livelihoods after Hurricane Irma. This project will work towards the long-term sustainable development and management of Barbuda in light of climate change and extreme weather events.
