From May 27 to June 1, 2019, the Understanding Risk (UR) Caribbean Conference will take place in Barbados. The UR Caribbean Conference will advance knowledge sharing and collaboration about disaster risk identification.
UR is a global community of Disaster Risk Management practitioners that exchange knowledge, collaborate, and share best practices in the field of disaster risk assessment. Every two years, GFDRR convenes the UR community at global forums, and the UR community also holds regional events such as this one to focus on regional issues and capacity building.
The funding from the ACP-EU NDRR Program will be used for, among others, logistics, travel costs of Caribbean representatives, and consultant services.
