Saint Lucia Chosen For Disaster Response Project

Saint Lucia is among five Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries chosen by the World Food Programme (WFP) to serve as a model for the Caribbean in disaster response coordination.

According to CMC News, the others are Jamaica, Belize, Dominica and Guyana.

CMC reported that they have been identified as the regional countries that the WFP Head of Office for Barbados, Regis Chapman, said would form “part of our efforts to build evidence of shock-responsive social protection in the Caribbean”.

Chapman, who attended the just ended Caribbean Regional Symposium, was quoted as saying that the countries were selected “based on their level of linking social protection with disaster management”.

The symposium was organised by the WFP, the Barbados-based Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), and the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) government.
