The Caribbean Hazard Mitigation Capacity Building Programme (CHAMP) is a three-year project funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), implemented by the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Response Agency (CDERA) and executed by the Organization of American States (OAS). The project is seeking to enhance regional capacity to reduce vulnerability to the effects of natural hazards. This will be done through the development of national hazard mitigation policies and implementation programmes, the promotion of the wider use of hazard information in development decisions and the strengthening of safe building practices building training and certification. CHAMP activities will be carried out in the four pilot states of Belize, British Virgin Islands, Grenada and St. Lucia.
