A countrywide building damage assessment led by UNDP in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria has revealed that 19% of all residential buildings in Dominica were destroyed.
26% suffered major damage, 29% suffered minor damage and 27% minimal damage.
Stephen O'Malley says as part of the UNDP's build back better approach, the UNDP is promoting disaster resilient communities, and this means ensuring that critical buildings such as health centres can survive the worst storm.
O’Malley also referenced some of the major programs implemented by the UNDP post Hurricane Maria in Dominica, and expressed thanks to the Government of Dominica for facilitating the teams of the UNDP while on island.
