UNESCO Water-related Disaster Reduction Workshop

Effective Disaster Management and Mitigation are essential to Caribbean Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) resilience and will allow for response that reduces the impact of water-related disaster risks. It is therefore crucial to explore Early Warning Systems, develop relevant tools and support capacity building as a means of accessing climate adaptation pathways to address the impact of climate on water resources within the region and in particular Saint Lucia.

In that regard, UNESCO will be facilitating a Water-related Disaster Reduction Workshop for knowledge sharing and capacity development in the water-related disaster Management Ecosystem in Saint Lucia from 5th to 6th December 2023 at the Harbour Club Hotel, Rodney Bay, Gros Islet.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together local stakeholders involved with disaster risk reduction, mitigation and management with technical experts to support local priorities in strengthening their capacities to manage water resources in the face of hazardous climatic scenarios.
This workshop will be facilitated jointly by the Saint Lucia Water Resources Management Agency (WRMA) and the UNESCO Science Sector Programme within the UNESCO office for the Caribbean.

We are pleased to invite the Media to provide coverage of the opening of the Water-related Disaster reduction and Management Workshop on Tuesday, 05 December 2023 from 9:00 a.m. at the Harbour Club Hotel, Rodney Bay, Gros Islet.
