The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) is hosting an orientation workshop today on the Strategic Targeting Methodology– A process for community selection for Disaster Risk Reduction Programmes.
The workshop is being held in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Society (IFRC), the SVG Red Cross Society and the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA).
The session aims to introduce the Strategic Targeting Methodology, which is a process to identify communities at risk for disaster risk reduction and climate change and adaption actions; and to present the activities of two initiatives funded by the European Commission –Department of Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection.
These include the Caribbean Communities Organized and Prepared for Emergencies which is a Regional programme being implemented jointly by the IFRC and CDEMA, and the Community Resilience and Institutional Preparedness Project being implemented here by the SVG Red Cross with support from the French Red Cross.
