Science for Humanitarian Emergencies and Resilience (SHEAR) scoping study: Annex 6 - Notes from Caribbean workshop and stakeholder engagement

The study provides recommendations on research priorities for risk assessments and early warning systems for weather-related hazards

Abstract

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.

This report has been produced by HR Wallingford Ltd for Evidence on Demand with the assistance of the UK Department for International Development (DFID) contracted through the Climate, Environment, Infrastructure and Livelihoods Professional Evidence and Applied Knowledge Services (CEIL PEAKS) programme, jointly managed by HTSPE Limited and IMC Worldwide Limited.
