Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) – May 15, 2023, Kingstown, Saint Vincent – Over thirty persons were awarded certificates for their participation in the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) Logistics Support System Workshop.
Most of the participants who represented a number of sectors including private, public and voluntary organisations had the opportunity to use the CDEMA Logistics Support System (CLS) Software following the explosive eruptions of the La Soufriere volcano in 2021 as they were actively involved in the National Emergency Management Organisation’s relief efforts.
However, through this workshop, they were able to gain a better understanding of logistics management, the need for Standard Operating Procedures in the management of relief supplies and the role of the CDEMA Logistics Support System in supporting the management of relief supplies in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The workshop also provided an opportunity for the participants to hone their skills as administrators and end-users in the different functionalities of this regional software.
This Regional Logistics System Workshop was conducted by the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in collaboration with the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the World Food Programme (WFP).
The facilitators were Mr. Cayle Francis-Thornhill and Mr. Kevon Campbell, Logistics Officers at CDEMA and Mr. Geoffrey Chao consultant at the World Food Programme.
The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency‘s Logistics Support System (CLS) is an end-to-end logistic system that is used to track supplies from the manufacturer to the end user.
