Resilient Islands Project – Communications and CEA Component

The Resilient Islands (RI) Communications team comprises Communications and Community Engagement and Accountability (CEA) personnel from both the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC). The team works together to help develop communications and CEA strategies, plans and materials for the overall project and the respective geographies. The team also helps to promote the work of the RI project across the Caribbean and in each of the geographies and supports the teams in Jamaica, Grenada and the Dominican Republic in carrying out their activities.

The team has also played a key role in the development of the Resilient Island Resource Mobilization Strategy, providing guidance and designing the communication plan to accompany the Resource Mobilization efforts.
