New IDB study estimates potential impact on cities and people in low-elevation coastal zones
BELIZE CITY, Belize – A new study by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) estimates that 4.2 million people in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Caribbean and in the Pacific are living in areas that are prone to flooding due to rising sea levels.
The Inter- American Development Bank will support the Government of Belize’s efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to communities affected by Hurricane Earl with a US$200,000 grant.
The objective of the grant is to support the National Emergency Management Organization’s (NEMO) efforts to assist vulnerable populations in communities damaged by high winds and floods in various parts of the country.
