The application of technologies, research, development, promotion of innovative approaches and local knowledge to confront complex issues posed by hazards are important components of managing disaster risks and guiding informed decision-making. Hence commitments to support and enhance access to technologies and to foster innovative approaches to risk reduction, preparedness and resilient recovery are essential requirements for the management of current and future disasters in the Caribbean subregion. Considering the importance of Disaster and Risk Management (DRM), the aim of this study is to assess and discuss the application of technologies and innovative approaches related to DRM in the subregion. The study will consider the five pillars of DRM: risk identification, risk reduction, preparedness, financial protection and resilient recovery. It will examine the types of available and applied technologies, discuss selected innovative approaches, evaluate and recommend strategies to advance the use, accessibility and uptake of these in all five pillars of DRM in the Caribbean subregion. The research is expected to contribute to the ongoing global discussion on the use of technology and innovation for DRM, with special attention to the sustainable development challenges of the Caribbean Small Islands Developing States (SIDS)
