CDEMA – The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) is hosting a five-day workshop on Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) Methodology in Bridgetown, Barbados from March 27-31, 2023.

Approximately thirty (30) participants from seven CDEMA Participating States; Antigua & Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are attending the training.
