The Multi-Hazard Risk Management Guide for the Caribbean Tourism Sector was designed as a practical tool, addressing all phases of the Disaster Management cycle with a comprehensive and well-articulated treatment of the range of natural and other hazards, which can affect the Caribbean tourism industry. The Guide incorporates climate and disaster risk mitigation and adaptation strategies providing structured guidance and templates to function as a Tourism Sector DRM Road-map that covers (i) mitigation; (ii) preparedness; (iii) response; and (iv) recovery including business continuity.

The Guide was developed by the Caribbean Tourism Organization with cooperation and technical assistance from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) as part of the Supporting a Climate Smart and Sustainable Caribbean Tourism Industry project (CSSCTI), funded by the European Union (EU) through the African Caribbean Pacific (ACP), EU and CDB Natural Disaster Risk Management (NDRM) in the CARIFORUM Countries Programme.
