“Preparing the Caribbean for a Decade of Change"
IRF’s flagship event in Caribbean has become an essential gathering point for the region’s top transportation decision-makers and professionals, combining regional case studies and international insights.
The exceptional circumstances surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic must not detract attention from the region’s underlying transportation challenges, which were once more highlighted by Ministers at the 8th IRF Regional Caribbean Congress in Georgetown, Guyana. Taking place online for the first time since its inception in 2012, the Congress also represents an opportunity to share the wealth of experience accumulated by the region’s different. road agencies in planning for crises and ensuring the continuity of essential transportation services.

From the Chairman
On behalf of the IRF’s global volunteer leadership and members, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 9th IRF Caribbean Regional Congress taking place in a virtual format as part of a concerted strategy to offer a safe, and optimal experience to all participants. .
The IRF has been a focal presence in the Caribbean since 2012 through its IRF Caribbean Regional Congress, as an annual gathering of the region’s top transportation decision-makers and professionals. In spite of the circumstances, we are resolute in our mandate to continue innovating across a range of industry challenges, from resilient road design to public partnership models, all designed to ensure that the value of roads to society is maximized.
This year’s IRF Congress focus reflects growing concerns throughout the region for vulnerabilities in the road network exposed by recent acute weather events. A road system that cannot withstand the emerging impacts of climate change will prove burdensome, impose high costs for repair, and delays disaster recovery efforts, causing significant economic losses. Clearly defined and effective evacuation routes can be the difference between life and death.
I trust all of you will enjoy this event and take this opportunity to learn, explore and share valuable insights, solutions, and technologies that can be applied to solve critical transportation challenges in your respective countries.
Eng. Abdullah A. Al-Mogbel
