Jamaica is the largest island in the English-speaking Caribbean, and the most populated with 2.95 million people. Like its neighbours, Jamaica is vulnerable to natural disasters - such as hurricanes and flooding - and the effects of climate change. It is an upper middle-income economy that is nevertheless struggling due to low growth, high public debt, and exposure to external shocks (World Bank, 2020).
