The United Kingdom works closely with partners across the region, including the US, to coordinate multinational responses to major disasters affecting the Caribbean and British Overseas Territories. The UK Government supports the Overseas Territories to prepare for and respond to the impacts of major natural hazard events.

The Royal Navy supported the US led response to hurricanes in Central America in 2020 and the Haiti earthquake in 2021. UK-US cooperation here is primarily coordinated through our military partnership, and through the Multinational Coordination Cell for the Caribbean.
