When Disaster Strikes

Creating Jobs on the Island Abaco

Clip: Episode 3 | 2m 51s | Video has closed captioning.

On Abaco, one of the islands worst-affected by Hurricane Dorian, Juliet Deal from the UNDP heads up cash-for-work schemes so that local people who have lost their jobs can be paid to rehabilitate schools and infrastructure. This helps get the economy up-and-running, both by injecting income and, in the long term, by allowing children to return to school and families to return home.
