Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) – The Comprehensive Disaster Management, Coordination and Harmonization Council (CDM CHC) was established in December 2007 following the endorsement of the enhanced CDM Strategy and Programming Framework 2007-2012.
Under this strategy, the CDEMA CU and CDM Partners were successful in establishing six Sector Sub-Committees of the CDM CHC.
The sub-committees are key to the implementation of the strategy at the sectoral level, to achieve the four CDM Priority Areas.
Strengthened institutional arrangements for CDM
Increased and sustained knowledge management and learning for CDM
Improved integration of CDM at sectoral levels
Strengthened and sustained community resilience
Through the Targeted Support to CDEMA Project, the following sector sub-committees meetings were held this year:
A meeting of the CDM CHC
Physical and Environmental Planning Sector Sub-Committee
Gender Working Group
Civil Sector Sub-Committee
