Dominica 2017–2018 / hurricane maria

The project repaired 670 roofs and constructed 80 core houses in compliance with Dominica housing standards, for households affected by the large-scale damage caused by Hurricane Maria. The island has a shortage of skilled construction workers and labourers compared to the magnitude of destruction and recurring hurricane seasons. Thus, the programme used circular migration of 40 skilled workers from the region and extensive training of local labourers.
