Safer Building
Comprehensive approach for Disaster Management in the Caribbean (CDM) PDF Print E-mail

The broad goal of the project is to reduce disaster risk in the Caribbean. This will only be achieved in a number of years and will be measured in terms of diminished loss of life, property damage and economic dislocations. The development objective of the project is to begin to effectively realize and embed comprehensive disaster management (CDM) into the development process of the Caribbean countries and to strengthen CDERA to help achieve this. Achievement of the development objective of the project will be measured by the number of countries in the region that begin the process of incorporating CDM into their overall development strategies.

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.
