Abstract

This says that there is a need for a new approach to increase the resilience of some schools as emergency shelters for the communities. This need has resulted in the consultancy for a technical assessment to establish possible options for retrofitting the schools to improve their resilience to climate change. This report presents Deliverable 5.1 – A Road Map for Roll-out and Recommendations for Upscaling and Replication of the outputs of this project – “Increasing Resilience of the Education System to Climate Change in Saint Lucia and Antigua and Barbuda”. This road map highlights the processes and routes essential for facilitating the acceptance, adoption and, in some cases, the adaptation of the findings and recommendations made. In designing the road map, ECMC adopted some of the approaches promoted under the Global Program for Safer Schools by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (2014). Through the project’s mandate, and by extension, the road map, promoting the findings of the consultancy on a national basis; encouraging the OECS Commission to be a key stakeholder; and promoting the formulation or adoption of guidelines, are considered an absolute imperative for upscaling and replicating the project’s outcomes.
