NEMO holds Disaster Management Training

The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), in collaboration with the United Nations’ Emergency Task Team, is presently conducting a three-day workshop on Disaster Management Training. UNICEF’s Country Representative, Dr. Susan Kassede spoke of the importance of the training.

Dr. Susan Kassede – UNICEF REPRESENTATIVE: It will ensure that front line persons responsible for coordinating and guiding emergency response in Belize have access to the most current basic information on critical themes that have been identified that need to be strengthened in our own preparedness and response to emergencies in Belize. NEMO identified four areas that can be strengthened based on evaluation based on experience in responding to Hurricane Earl in 2016 and previous experience. These areas are awareness around Climate change adaptation,Gender equality, care for populations with Special Needs Children, women, the elderly and persons with disabilities and then finally sectoral assessments, in depth assessments undertaken several weeks after an emergency to inform the detailed actions budgeted for and implemented by each sector to respond to the complications that we start to understand following an emergency. So that’s the importance of this training; to share basic information, to share global standards and lessons from experience to improve our response.

The Minister responsible for NEMO, Edmond Castro said the training is necessary to ensure that first responders hone their skills.

Edmond Castro – Minister responsible for NEMO: We will continue to try and make this organization and training like this; it is very vital, very important and I’d like to thank each and everyone of you here today representing the different stakeholders. Take the time out for the next day or so to come, learn and see how we can manage this organization and make it the ideal NEMO organization that we could possibly have or experience in our lifetime. And we would like to set and example for those to come after us ; that they will be able to continue in the good spirit of unity across all cross section and organizations that we have here today.

Tisa Grant, Liaison Officer of the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) Caribbean is a key presenter at the workshop.
