Proposed projects can focus on improving policies, regulatory frameworks, project preparation capacities, resource mobilization, project implementation, and data systems to make infrastructure more resistant to natural disasters and climate change impacts.

5. Why is this initiative important for SIDS?
SIDS face escalating risks from sea level rise, intensifying storms, flooding, and other environmental threats that can devastate critical infrastructure. Enhancing resilience is crucial for safeguarding communities and supporting economic development.

6. What recognition has CDRI received for its efforts?
CDRI’s Infrastructure for Resilient Island States (IRIS) was awarded the 2024 UN SIDS Partnership Award in the Environment category for its innovative partnerships and contributions to sustainable development in SIDS.

7. What will the funding support?
The funding will provide SIDS with knowledge products, tools, and partnerships needed to achieve climate and disaster-resilient infrastructure, enabling resilient economies and a secure future.

8. What are the next steps for accessing the funding?
Detailed criteria, guidelines, and submission procedures for the CDRI resilience project proposals will be issued in the coming weeks. The coalition aims to rapidly deploy support to address the urgent resilience needs facing SIDS worldwide.
