The Community Disaster Risk Reduction Trust Fund was established by the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) with grant financing from the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development, Canada and the Department for International Development, United Kingdom. The Fund finances community-based disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA) initiatives at the local level across eligible borrowing member countries of the CDB.
