The Commonwealth of Dominica has won the title of the “safest places in the Caribbean and Latin America,” as disclosed by the World Citizenship Report (WCR).
By considering the data from the Global Peace Index (GPI) 2021 and World Governance Indicators (WGI), the World Citizenship Report (WCR) has ranked the Nature isle of the Caribbean third in the region with an overall grade of 77.3, bringing it to the 33rd safest place in the international arena.
Under the Caribbean region, Dominica followed Uruguay’s safety and security score of 82 and Costa Rica’s 79.
Iceland, Switzerland and France have been ranked at the top globally, while large economy countries like France (76.5), the US (64.4), and the UAE (65.9) are ranking much behind Dominica.
The report further mentions the recent weather calamities taking place in the Caribbean and has given Dominica a high rank as the island’s authorities prioritise the rapidly developing climate-resilient infrastructure.
“The region has further focused on the physical safety, the rule of law and political stability. Notably, Dominica topped in the fields like voice and accountability, where citizens feel empowered to hold leaders accountable to their needs and aspirations.”
The report further suggests that, “Caribbean citizenship allows citizens across the globe to have an access to some of the best travel and economic markets in the world through its growing roster of visa-free and visa-on-arrival destinations.
But COVID-19 has subjected international travel to major question, which made it more suspicious about the working of healthcare systems as to whether it could manage health crisis.”
