Servicios: The Red Cross Societies of the Caribbean are served by the Caribbean Regional Representation Office (CRRO) and by the Caribbean Disaster Risk Management Resource Center in Barbados. In collaboration with their Disaster, Health and Youth networks, CRRO supports the thirteen Red Cross National Societies of the English Speaking Caribbean, to act before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people throughout the region. The climate change work is undertaken through scaling up disaster risk reduction measures and strengthening traditional methods of coping with disasters that are relevant in particular environmental contexts. CRRO contributes to measures for adaptation, trough actions to reduce the vulnerability of communities to modified environments, and for mitigation, through environment-friendly behaviours that also reduce the extent of global warming which causes climate change.
