Caribbean Emergency

Legislation Project

                                                                                 

The Department of Sustainable Development (DSD) of the General Secretariat of the Organization of American States (GS-OAS), with the support of the World Bank, is the executing agency for the Caribbean Emergency Legislation Project (CELP). The objective of the project is to build legislative capacity to enhance legal and institutional frameworks for state of emergency and budget appropriation in eleven CARICOM countries and the Dominican Republic. Further, the project aims to make recommendations on how to improve legislative channels and administrative procedures during, and immediately after, the occurrence of a natural disaster.

Pursuant to these objectives, the project will assess current legal-institutional frameworks in the Caribbean applicable under a state of emergency, review global best practices, and promote dialogue with national and regional stakeholders, in order to ascertain areas for improvement and make recommendations that are best suited for the Caribbean region. The project consists of the following components:

(a) Improving the Legal and Institutional Frameworks Related to State of Emergency, More...

(b) National and Regional Outreach and Validation of Finding. More...
