Message from the Chairman

Hon. Ralph Higgs, Chairman of CDEMA Ministerial Council

Dear friends and attendees, as Chairman of the CDEMA Council of Ministers, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you, to the 11th Caribbean Conference on Comprehensive Disaster Management, on behalf of the people of the Caribbean and the Member States of CDEMA.

As you are aware, CDEMA is the region’s principle disaster management body, with 18 member states, working in concert to promote disaster preparedness and risk mitigation, in the event of Natural or Manmade hazards. This Conference is CDEMA’s premier event and aims to bring together all of its members and partners for five days of intense discussions, workshops, displays and interaction intended to make us a more resilient people and region.

About the Event

Slated for December 2 - 6 2019, the 11th Caribbean Conference on Comprehensive Disaster Management (CDM) will be hosted in collaboration with the Government of Sint Maarten under the theme “The Road to Resilience Checkpoint 2019 - Safeguarding Our Communities, Livelihoods and Economies”.

Since the hosting of the first conference in 2006, the event has gained recognition as the flagship event on the CDEMA Calendar and the premier DRM forum within the Caribbean region. The conference has showcased best practices emerging from CDEMA’s 18 Participating States and has emerged as a platform for the engagement of political leaders, physical planners, meteorologists, climate change stakeholders, researchers, educators, and public and private financial experts as well as facilitated inter-stakeholder exchanges/networking and “birthing” of new policy ideas.
