(CREWS) Cooperation in the implementation of the CREWS Caribbean Initiative
This project is implemented in the framework of the CREWS (Climate Risk and Early Warning Systems) Caribbean initiative. In the Caribbean, CREWS strengthens and streamlines regional and national systems and capacity related to weather forecasting, hydrological services, multi-hazard impact-based warnings and service delivery for enhanced decision-making.
K&I contribution (carried out in the context of the framework agreement between WMO, GWP and K&I relating to the Associated Program on Flood Management) consists in strengthening the capacities of local actors for enhancing their involvement in the management of floods in Antigua & Barbuda and in further Caribbean small islands. K&I is in charge of conducting a training workshop and drafting of a “Manual on Community-based Floods Management in the Caribbean”. Moreover K&I is required to cooperate in the design and the implementation of a Regional Training Workshop on Gender Mainstreaming in End-to-End Early Warning System for Flood Forecasting and Integrated Flood Risk Management.
