Two years after the implementation of the 2014-2024 Caribbean Comprehensive Disaster Management Strategy, delegates to a one-week regional forum in the Bahamas will discuss the progress made to date.

The Caribbean Conference on Comprehensive Disaster Management (CDM9), which opens today and runs until December 4th, is being held under the theme ‘The Road to Resilience: Checkpoint 2015’.

Director of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Captain Stephen Russell said “the Bahamas, through NEMA, is pleased to host the high level conference as Participating States, namely-Dominica and The Bahamas, continue to rebuild livelihoods following the destructive Tropical Storm Erika and the category four Hurricane Joaquin, respectively”.

The conference will facilitate discussions on how the region can move to become more resilient in the face of being most vulnerable to climate change.
