St. Lucia - Storm insurance

By clicking on the video, you will change the context of this page.

Tropical storms are causing increasing damage to the Caribbean each year - and the costs are rising. Climate change has led to more frequent and severe hurricanes, and it is often the region's poorest who suffer the most. Many impoverished families can lose everything they own in a single night. Micro-insurance could help protect families against such losses and play a role not just in helping people adapt to a changing climate but also in combating poverty.
