Keep Hope Afloat: Flood Risk Management in Trinidad and Tobago

United Way Trinidad and Tobago has undertaken a public flood information campaign to spread awareness and strengthen already existing stakeholder relationships in integrated flood risk management. We believe that empowerment through information is a key step in building our medium to long term resilience. We invite you visit the landing page at: https://communi-tt.tracking-progress.org/frm/ and to share local content.

This project is aligned with the following Sustainable Development Goals:

Goal 6- Clean Water and Sanitation

Goal 11- Sustainable Cities and Communities

Goal 13- Climate Action

Flood events do not always have to mean a disaster if we can work together to reduce flood likelihood and the vulnerability of physical structures and citizens. Flood risk management involves an integrated approach by various stakeholders to increase a population’s capacity to prevent, prepare, respond and recover from a flood event.

See our video series on YouTube for the campaign by visiting the following links:

NDOC 2019 Dare to Care Campaign

For this year’s National Day of Caring our theme is #DARETOCARETT – T&T needs more Heroes.

It continues our social impact messaging over the last years from ‘Changing the conversation to hope, possible and encourage’ to 2018 ‘You are the Missing Piece’.

We are also strengthening our campaign focus to greater follow up after NDOC to #SHARETHECARE and for a greater, more sustained sharing of acts of kindness.

Part of this is the Dare to Care Challenge where:

  1. You do a dare
  2. Post it & tag #DareToCareTT
  3. Dare a friend

 

See the list below to get an idea of the dares you can choose from:

Dare to make a difference every day. Share the list, tag a friend, do the dare!
