Friday, May 26, 2006 - On May 29 and 30, the National Emergency Management Organisation [NEMO], shall meet with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency [CDERA] and the Caribbean Development Bank [CDB] from 9:00 am at the Bay Gardens Inn.


CDERA, through its Caribbean Hazard Mitigation Capacity Programme (CHAMP), and the CDB, through its Disaster Mitigation Facility for the Caribbean (DMFC), have embarked with the Governments of Grenada, Belize and Saint Lucia to develop national hazard mitigation plans.


The rationale for this two day workshop is to provide the Plan Development Committees (PDCs) with an understanding of the findings of the preceding phases of the national hazard mitigation plan development process and through working groups and plenary sessions, refine the remaining planning tasks required to produce national hazard mitigation plans documents by August 15, 2006.


Workshop Objectives


(a)   To familiarize participants with the results of the vulnerability assessment conducted for critical facilities.


(b)   To understand the range of mitigation measures that should be considered by the PDCs for inclusion in the national mitigation plans.   


(c)   Provide the PDCs with the necessary tools to evaluate and prioritize mitigation actions.


(d)   Explain how the Model Framework can support the development of the mitigation strategy, implementation mechanisms and annual action plans.


Saint Lucia presently has a Hazard Mitigation Policy and Plan both adopted by the National Emergency Management Advisory Committee [NEMAC].  The final stage shall be to take the Documents to the Cabinet of Ministers.
