Dear CDM participants, colleagues and friends,
It is an honor and great pleasure to be here in Barbados with all of you.
On behalf of the ISDR system may I thank you for the opportunity to attend this Conference, which has become the key annual event for those working on disaster issues in the Caribbean region.
I usually prepare a long statement providing more information, which you will get hopefully in hard copy, this time coupled with the PPT presentation, pointing at key issues.
This report covers the period of 01/01/2006 to 31/12/2007 of a two-year planning and appeal process.
Goal: National Societies in the Caribbean region are implementing efficient, responsive and focused programmes that contribute to improving the lives of vulnerable people.
