Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems in the Caribbean: Achievements and Strategic Path Forward

The Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems in the Caribbean: Multi-Hazard Early Warning Systems: Achievements and Strategic Path Forward is a high-level meeting conceptualized to highlight the advances made by six beneficiary countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Saint Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines) under the Project entitled ‘Strengthen integrated early warning systems for more effective disaster risk reduction in the Caribbean through knowledge and tool transfer’ both as Project achievements and progress towards achieving the outcomes of the regional and global frameworks for disaster risk reduction. The aim of this event is to provide the opportunity to highlight advances made towards achieving CDM/Sendai Framework goals and targets through the Project and to raise awareness among the political directorate on the required support for achieving integrated, fully functional MHEWS. The meeting will also allow for the identification of key regional strategic, planning and programming actions that require regional coordination for replication and leadership in MHEWS.
