Jan 2022
This report presents a probabilistic disaster risk assessment model for Barbados, focusing on beach erosions caused by episodic cyclonic hazard events and chronic effects associated with maritime climate. The probabilistic risk is expressed in terms of direct and indirect economic losses due to expected repair costs and downtimes, and income losses due to declines in tourism visitation and touristic usage in affected beach areas. The Comprehensive Approach for Probabilistic Risk Assessment (CAPRA) was used as a methodological model for conducting this study.
