Creating renewable, clean drinking water for a remote island school in Belize

Belize

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Due to storms and flooding, the island of Caye Caulker often struggles to provide clean drinking water to its community members. Forced to rely on wasteful single-use bottled water and water delivery by ferry, drinking water has become increasingly harder to obtain on the island, making the community susceptible to a water shortage crisis.

As part of their work to build climate change resilience, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) identified the school and community center as two locations in need of clean, resilient drinking water. Together, the IDB’s Caribbean Climate Smart Islands Program and SOURCE installed 23 Hydropanels at Caye Caulker Roman Catholic School and the Caye Caulker Community Center. Now students, staff, and community center visitors have a sustainable, resilient supply of drinking water despite, the islands unpredictable climate.
