The Understanding Risk (UR) Caribbean Conference took place in Barbados from May 27 to June 1, 2019. 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, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (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 UR Caribbean Conference advanced knowledge sharing and collaboration about disaster risk identification. The funding from the ACP-EU NDRR Program was used to convene Caribbean Delegates to the conference as well as for logistics.
