Planning for Disaster Risk Management & Disaster Assessment Methodology in the context of the 2030 Development Agenda and the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals

24 de enero de 2017|Evento

ECLAC and the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) have convened a four-day training course in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, to improve the ability of policymakers from eight Caribbean countries to prepare for disasters and to assess their effects and impacts.

The training, which takes place from 24-27 January 2017 under the theme “Planning for Disaster Risk Management and Disaster Assessment Methodology in the context of the 2030 Development Agenda and the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals”, is being attended by policy makers representing disaster management agencies in Aruba, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Trinidad and Tobago, in addition to representatives from ECLAC, the ACS and Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA).

During the various sessions, participants are learning about the complexities of a disaster, how it might affect different sectors, and how to properly apply ECLAC’s Disaster Assessment Methodology, as well as the necessary information to do this in a time-effective manner.
