Disaster management in the Caribbean

CaribNation TV with Host Derrice Dean

(10 Sept. 2017) — “Disaster management in the Caribbean” is an inciteful discussion of the mechanisms and resources in place for disaster management in the Caribbean region.  Two experts provide important information on how Caribbean islands individually and collectively are prepared and respond to disasters. They also provide inciteful information on ways to mitigate the effect of disasters on physical infrastructure before these disasters occur.

Members of the Caribbean diaspora, as well as friendly governments, aid agencies, and non-governmental organizations wishing to assist Caribbean countries in the wake of natural disasters could benefit from this discussion which also highlights the mechanism in place for assessing post-disaster needs and managing assistance.
