Caribbean communities are exposed to risks that have direct correlation with the regions geological origin and climatic characteristics. The impacts of natural hazards will always be a concern to communities that are exposed to these threats.
The geological dynamics of the Caribbean Basin forms part of, what is referred to as the Caribbean plate which is in constant motion. The presence of several active volcanoes in our region including our own Kick ‘em Jenny provides evidence of this. While the dynamics of seismic activities can be said to remain constant, climate and weather related hydrological phenomena have increased in magnitude and frequency.
