Flood Risk Management in Trinidad and Tobago

United Way Trinidad and Tobago is undertaking a public flood information campaign to spread awareness and strengthen already existing stakeholder relationships in integrated flood risk management. We believe that empowerment through information is a key step in building our medium to long-term resilience.  We invite you to use this landing page to share local content.

This project is aligned with the following Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Goal 6- Clean Water and Sanitation
  • Goal 11- Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • Goal 13- Climate Action

Flood events do not always have to mean a disaster if we can work together to reduce flood likelihood and the vulnerability of physical structures and citizens.  Flood risk management involves an integrated approach by various stakeholders to increase a population’s capacity to prevent, prepare, respond and recover from a flood event.

Islands Like Us is a guide to what you, a citizen of Trinidad and Tobago, should know about climate change, which is one of the factors that has led to increased flooding events.

Following from Islands Like Us, Safer Ground is a book about Flooding in Trinidad and Tobago and what we can do to get as Flood-Ready as possible.

Flood risk management initiatives do not necessarily have to directly involve or integrate other stakeholders, but must at least take into consideration the overall aims of reducing vulnerability and increasing capacity.  Please click on any of the following icons for more information, or go directly to the related tab.
