Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility (CCRIF SPC)

CCRIF SPC is a not-for-profit risk pooling facility, owned, operated and registered in the Caribbean for Caribbean governments. It offers parametric insurance designed to limit the financial impact of catastrophic tropical cyclones, earthquakes and excess rainfall events on Caribbean governments by quickly providing short-term liquidity when a policy is triggered. Products are offered through segregated portfolios, which allows for total segregation of risk.

CCRIF also manages a Technical Assistance Programme, offering small grants for disaster risk management (DRM) and adaptation focused projects or capacity building initiatives.
