Virgin Islands charities and other not-for-profit groups are expected to benefit from the work of a newly formed partnership announced this week. The announcement was made by former U.S. President Bill Clinton on the final day of a two day conference, sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative Action Network.
Two sessions that looked at small business development and climate change continued a conversation on resiliency between regional leaders and potential partners that Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. said may not happen often but which he called critical to each island being able to respond better each time disaster strikes and recover more quickly.
As efforts to rebuild in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria continue, the Caribbean has the unique opportunity to look at what it can do better to prepare, how it can be more resilient and how it can serve as a role model for other countries across the world facing or recovering from natural disasters, according to former President Bill Clinton.
Before heading off to St. Thomas to convene a symposium at the University of the Virgin Islands, Bill and Hillary Clinton visited two sites on St. John that are emblematic of the island’s recovery efforts.
On Monday, June 3 and Tuesday, June 4, former President Bill Clinton will host the fourth meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery, at the University of the Virgin Islands' St. Thomas campus.
