National and Regional Outreach and Validation of Findings


This component involves initiating dialogue at both the national and regional levels on how to improve state of emergency legislation. The dialogue will be guided by the analytical findings and recommendations arising out of Component 1, and will manifest through: (a) conducting national workshops in select countries, with experts engaged in natural disaster emergency management, budget appropriation, and legislative reform; and (b) conducting a regional workshop to discuss: the findings and recommendations of the legal and institutional framework analysis, and the steps that may be taken to implement reforms. It is expected that activities under this component will yield a participatory assessment of the state of the legal and institutional frameworks in the Caribbean, with recommendations for improvement offered.
