The objective of the Science for Humanitarian Emergencies and Resilience
(SHEAR) scoping study is to provide the UK Government’s Department for
International Development (DFID) with evidence-based recommendations on
future research priorities for risk assessments and early warning
systems for weather-related hazards (e.g. cyclones, floods, droughts,
landslides) for humanitarian and development purposes for low-income
countries across Africa, South Asia and the Caribbean.
This annex summarises the engagement with Caribbean stakeholders that
took place via the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency
(CDEMA) eighth annual Caribbean Conference on Comprehensive Disaster
Management, 2 to 6 December 2013, and the third International Conference
on Climate Services (ICCS), 3 to 6 December 2013, both of which were
held in Montego Bay in Jamaica. The objective was to ensure consultative
engagement with stakeholders from the Caribbean who are representative
of the target audience for the SHEAR programme including end users,
researchers and technical experts.
