This profile is not a conclusive list. Other risks may be possible from sources that are not readily identifiable. The information sources used are public websites. All efforts are made to screen the websites for accuracy.
The objective of the Environmental Risk Identification (ERI) is to alert the UN Country Team after the natural disaster to potential secondary risks posed by large infrastructure and industrial facilities containing hazardous materials located in the affected area.
Hurricane 'Iris' hit the southern part of the country in early October, with sustained winds of up to 145mph that destroyed agricultural crops, fishing equipment and tourism and housing infrastructure. Up to 90 percent of the banana crop of southern Belize was flattened by the category 4 hurricane winds, which also destroyed maize, paddy, citrus and cacao crops. The Government has appealed for international assistance, and the international community is providing emergency relief to the affected population.
