Theme: Resilience. Sustainability. Continuity
The 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season was an unprecedented one, with over thirty (30) tropical storms, of which thirteen (13) developed into hurricanes and six (6) intensified into major hurricanes. During the period June to November 2020, six (6) tropical cyclones made landfall or near landfall on various Caribbean islands. While there was not catastrophic damage from these cyclones, their presence further strained the resources of various Caribbean islands, in addition to the pressures of managing the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Against this backdrop of managing multiple hazards, the Disaster Coordinators’ Round Table will focus on disaster restoration in the absence of CARILEC’s Disaster Assistance Program (CDAP) deployment, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. In addition, under the theme, “Resilience. Sustainability. Continuity.”, disaster coordinators will share best practices on the management of multiple disasters, within the limitations of internal resources, while building resilience and ensuring viability and longevity.
The simulation will be held in partnership with the Caribbean Disaster & Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and will focus on generating real-time solutions to multi-hazard scenarios. The round table will be held two (2) days after the simulation, to permit attendees to review and critically assess the best practices and solutions suggested, within their internal departments. At the round table, disaster coordinators will discuss the results of the simulation and how best practices can be implemented as part of disaster management policies.
