On 27 to 31 May 2019, CDEMA and the EU, in partnership with the WB/GFDRR, hosted the Understanding Risk (UR) Conference in Barbados to identify disaster risk issues and address solutions across the region. The forum gathered over 500 delegates from more than 20 Caribbean countries with sessions and live demonstrations done by institutions and organizations such as the University of the West Indies, Harvard University, NASA, the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR). The Conference was co-financed by the ACP-EU NDRR Program.
The proceedings of the conference have been finalized and can be downloaded here.
