The Government of Dominica is benefiting from a 1.3 million euro dollar project seeking to advance Early Warning Systems (EWS) and Disaster Risk Reduction in several islands within the Caribbean.

The Ministry of Environment, Climate Resilience, Disaster Management and Urban Renewal initiated  the first of several high level sustainability dialogues to strengthen Dominica’s early warning systems this morning.

Several Permanent Secretaries, along with representatives from the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), met to discuss the future sustainability of Early Warning Systems.

Deputy Executive Director of the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency CDEMA is Elizabeth Riley.


Riley says legislation must be put in place for the advancement of Early Warning Systems in Dominica.
