Dominica Post Hurricane Recovery Plan and Prioritisation


Dominica Post Hurricane Recovery Plan and Prioritisation

The Post-Damage Needs Assessment (PDNA) of the major agencies, coordinated by the World Bank, puts total damages and losses from Hurricane Maria at 226% of 2016 GDP, or $1.31bn. See the “Damages” and “Losses” columns in Table 1 below. The effect of this damage and loss is greater than this number suggests because Maria spared no part of the island from total destruction. There are no areas of stability or refuge from which to support and supply other parts. The entire power grid was and remains down. Water and sanitation pipes are broken. We lost nearly 100% of crops. Maria damaged ninety percent of our homes. She severely compromised the road and bridge network.
