A study on current trends in disaster risk management at the national and regional level
From the study:
For small Caribbean states, multiple commitments to several organizational frameworks can increase the financial and human resource pressures. Within the region, organizations such as the ACS, the CDB and CDEMA each have a DRM strategy or plan of action, and while there are similar interests, there appears to be the absence of a single comprehensive, unambiguous framework integrating these operations and providing for greater efficiency. Urgent consideration should therefore be given to the establishment of a “one stop shop” through an enhanced CDEMA organizational structure to provide the region with a more effective collaborative architecture for DRM.
