More than 20 government officers from eight countries, including Jamaica, are attending the Commonwealth Secretariat’s three-day Governance and Risk Management Conference at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston. It started yesterday and ends tomorrow.

According to the Jamaica Observer Newspaper, the event has been organized by the Public Sector Governance Unit within the Secretariat’s Governance and Peace Division, under the theme: ‘Improving Governance and Risk Management in Delivering Sustainable Development’.

It is intended to provide a forum to enable Commonwealth Caribbean member states to harness partnerships within the context of managing and addressing risks, particularly associated with weather and climate change, in implementing National Development Plans (NDPs), such as Vision 2030 Jamaica, and the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
