Join Us As An Official UR Caribbean Partner!

We are pleased to open partnership opportunities to support the 2019 Understanding Risk (UR) Caribbean Conference a regional forum aimed at sharing the most current disaster risk information with emphasis on identifying, assessing and reducing disaster risk in the Caribbean region. It is organized by the World Bank’s Caribbean Region Disaster Risk Management team, the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the European Union (EU); and is co-financed by the Africa, Caribbean, Pacific – European Union (ACP-EU) Natural Disaster Risk Reduction (NDRR) Program, managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery.

The week-long UR Caribbean event will convene in Barbados from May 27 – June 1 at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus’ Errol Barrow Center for Creative Imagination. It will be comprised of 350+ participants from public and private sectors, regional disaster risk management agencies, non-governmental organizations, multilateral development banks and donors across the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, Caribbean Community, and Overseas Countries and Territories.
