UNESCO undertakes water-related disaster management exercise in Saint Lucia.
Effective disaster management and mitigation are essential to the resilience of Caribbean Small Islands Developing States (SIDS), and they will allow for response that reduces the impact of water-related disaster risks.
Notably, it is crucial to explore Early Warning Systems, develop specific 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.
It is with this in mind that UNESCO is facilitating a Water-related Disaster Reduction Workshop for knowledge sharing and capacity development in the Water-related Disaster Management Ecosystem in Saint Lucia.
This two-day activity is being held at the Harbor Club Hotel in Rodney Bay Gros Islet on Tuesday 5 to Wednesday 6 December, 2023.’
This activity aims to bring together local stakeholders involved with disaster risk reduction, management and mitigation with technical experts to support local priorities.
