Ladies and gentlemen at the Opening Session I referred to the seven-year marital itch and the recognition that once properly managed the outcome can be a prolonged productive and prosperous relationship.Today, I feel that the Comprehensive Disaster Management (CDM) Conference has put in place the requisite counselling and mitigation measures to ensure its continuity and growth.  The resolve by countries and partners to strengthen this CDM movement through the adaptation and/or development of appropriate policy, programme and resource mobilization is noted.

Greetings to all the people of the British Virgin Islands.

I am your Premier, Dr. D. Orlando Smith and I am here to speak to you briefly about the 2012 hurricane season.

Hurricanes are indeed powerful storms with the potential to produce significant storm surge, heavy rainfall, flooding, high winds and rip currents. It is important that all communities know how to prepare for each of these hazards.

Message to Mark the Beginning of the 2012 Hurricane Season By Dr. Hon. Ralph Gonsalves Prime Minister, St. Vincent and the Grenadines June 1, 2012 PDF Print E-mail

My fellow Vincentians and visitors to our lovely shores:

As has become the norm every year, today I address you at the start of the hurricane season. The hurricane season traditionally begins on June 1st and ends November 30th. However, this year, 2012, the season is off to an early start. On May 19th, 2012, Tropical Storm Alberto became the first named storm of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season and was quickly followed by Tropical Storm Beryl on May 27th. So ready or not, we are already seeing storms forming in the region.

Remarks of the Executive Director, CDEMA at the Capacity Building Workshop for Disaster Risk Management in Agriculture, Saint Lucia PDF Print E-mail

Ladies and gentlemen, the vulnerability of the Caribbean States necessitates continuous investments in disaster risk reduction capacity and capability building if we are to retard or reverse the epidemic of hazard related losses we have experienced over the last decade. To this end, CDEMA wishes to acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Brazil in contributing to the convening of today’s capacity building workshop for disaster risk management in the agricultural sector.  The Government of Brazil is the newest partner of CDEMA in its efforts to broker Comprehensive Disaster Management (CDM) in the region.
