Case Study: Building Resilience via Decentralised Water Resource Management in the Caribbean

The case studies presented here, provide some examples of how PPCR countries in the Caribbean are working towards improved resilience of the water sector through decentralized solutions. Findings indicate that decentralized solutions for water supply, such as rainwater harvesting, community-level storage, and small-scale desalination, present opportunities for resilience building in communities that are some of the most vulnerable to climate change. The Regional Track of the PPCR in the Caribbean will be working to improve rainwater harvesting and to provide solutions to three water-stressed communities in the region.
