Jamaica country quote

ZAP is such a wonderful project and we are really grateful for the work carried out in our communities. The technicians are well-mannered and helpful, and they ensure that we are both educated and equipped to tackle ZIKA. I really don’t want this project to end...

Expanding Our Impact

Abt-supported initiatives in Jamaica are improving climate change adaptation and providing technical assistance to Zika mitigation efforts. Jamaica’s economy has suffered from continuous natural disasters; the USAID-funded CEADIR and AILEG projects helped establish a national climate change policy framework to help get the country back on track. Abt supported disaster risk reduction, climate-smart agriculture and land management efforts to establish climate-resilient, clean energy communities. USAID’s Zika AIRS Project (ZAP)—led by Abt—provides technical assistance, monitoring and evaluation, and implementation tactics to Jamaican communities combating the Zika virus.
