RECIPIENT

THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

BACKGROUND

 

In early March 2018, VF formally offered support to the government of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and the BVI Climate Change Trust Fund (BVICCTF), to have the RaP initiative raise significant and needed funds for the resiliency and rebuilding efforts following the catastrophic damage left by 2017 Hurricanes Irma and Maria. The British Virgin Islands were severely damaged by two major hurricanes within weeks of each other. For the first time in history, scientists observed 3 major hurricanes simultaneously in the Atlantic Ocean. 2017 was the worst year of on record for natural disasters globally at $306b. This figure nearly doubled from the previous year. There’s an urgent need for high-risk nations to radically improve their disaster management capabilities. The next hurricane season is only 5 months away.

 

OUTCOMES

 

Following the mission to the British Virgin Islands, RaP has developed a stronger scope and can now move forward in carrying out events to raise the required funds for the project. Below are parts of the project that will be funded through the RaP concerts assisted by Metavents’ innovative project management capabilities.
