An "AFTER ACTION REVIEW" of HIV Projects financed by the World Bank in the Caribbean
This paper summarizes the key findings of an 'After Action Review' (AAR) that reflects a decade of experience in designing and implementing ten HIV/AIDS projects in the Caribbean, financed by the World Bank. The objective is to identify what worked (and what didn't) in the project approach, design and implementation, distilling useful lessons for other projects in small states.
1. Since 1999 DG ECHO has implemented six DIPECHO Action Plans (AP) in the Caribbean with a combined funding total of €16,875,001, supporting 66 projects implemented by 21 different NGOs, UN agencies, academic institutions and government bodies.
2. The objectives of APV and VI (running from 2006/07 and 2007/09 respectively) are similar and principally aim to reduce the impact of future disasters in the Caribbean region by preparing vulnerable populations in the areas most affected by recurrent natural hazards.
Barbados, Feb 18, 2005 (CDERA) - A released by the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDERA) today shows that some Caribbean countries are not fully utilising disaster loss reduction tools available to them.
The 2001 hurricane season was above average.
In December 2000 Professor William M Gray et al, forecasted that the 2001 hurricane season would be a below average hurricane season. However, at the beginning of the 2001 hurricane season, this team updated their forecast on June 07, 2001 to indicate that the season would be above average consisting of 12 named storms, 7 hurricanes and 3 intense hurricanes. The long-term averages are: Tropical Storms-10, Hurricanes-6 and Major Hurricanes-2. (NOAA, 2001).
