‘In the wake of this disaster, the Caribbean has an opportunity to rebuild smarter, cheaper, and better.’

On September 18, 2017, Hurricane Maria struck the island of Dominica at Category 5, leaving 15 dead and devastating the island and its approximately 73,000 inhabitants. Across the island, hurricanes Irma and Maria destroyed 70-80% of Dominica’s buildings and severely degraded the power and water systems. These hurricanes added to the devastation brought by Hurricane Erika in 2015.
