French Red Cross to host a regional cooperation event on disaster management in the Caribbean from May 17 to 19
More than 40 participants from 12 Red Cross Societies and regional partners, including the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDMEA), will participate in a regional workshop on cooperation and disaster risk management from May 17-19, 2022, in Sint Maarten. The Caribbean is exposed to major challenges in terms of natural hazards, epidemics, and climate change. In this context, strengthening cooperation and emergency response capacities is a major strategic goal to increase the resilience of populations significantly. As such, the event will be marked by the presence of the Director General of the French Red Cross, Jean-Christophe Combe.
