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) physical 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. At the round table, disaster coordinators will also discuss how best practices can be implemented as part of disaster management policies.
