In 2019, the Livelihood Based Assessment (LBA) and Contingency Planning approach was applied in Jamaica to provide pre-disaster livelihood information for five of the communities being supported through community projects funded by the Community Disaster Risk Reduction Fund (CDRRF) of the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB).
This report presents the information that was collected for the LBA exercise done in Trinityville, St. Thomas.
NEED FOR THE ASSESSMENT
The Social Development Commission (SDC) an agency within the Ministry of Youth, Culture and Sports has a mandate to facilitate community development in 783 communities and 4,417 districts in Jamaica.
The rationale for this profile is therefore to provide current, relevant information to inform development plans at the local levels in the communities, parochially and nationally.
