Designed for adaptation by countries at the national level
From the document:
Hazard risk is a threat to the viability of each of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) Participating States (PSs) and recent experiences with multi- hazard and multi-country impacts have served to underscore the economic and social vulnerability and fragility of the region as a whole.
This Model Evacuation Policy is designed for adaptation by countries at the national level. It was developed through consultations with stakeholders from thirteen CDEMA Participating States and with the CDEMA Coordinating Unit. The Policy was also informed by reviews of the CDEMA Model National Comprehensive Disaster Management Policy, the draft model Comprehensive Disaster Management Bill and Regulations (2012), and prevailing national legislation, strategies and plans.
