Implementation Arrangements

The project’s Executing Agency is the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) which is a regional inter-governmental agency for disaster management established by the Conference of Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community in September 1991.

Executing Unit
In order to coordinate the execution of the project, CDEMA set up an Executing Unit consisting of the Project Coordinator, and the Technical Officer who was contracted under the Institutional Strengthening component. The Unit received accounting and secretarial support from the existing CDEMA Coordinating Unit (CU).

Advisory Committee
The Executing Unit specifically, and the execution of the project as a whole, was guided by an Advisory Committee with the participation of CDEMA, CTO, CROSQ and representatives of the five project pilot countries (The Bahamas, Barbados, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos Islands).

National Focal Points
In order to facilitate the execution of the project, the Executing Unit worked with National Focal Points that were designated from the tourism sector of the project’s pilot beneficiary countries. These Focal Points were responsible, at a national level, for facilitating project execution, maintaining relations, and helping build consensus, with the necessary stakeholders. The countries actively collaborated in the project, and consensus on the various project elements was built through a series of regional and national workshops and technical meetings.
