Technical staff from the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management have completed a three-week training course on disaster management, which was held in the Republic of China (TAIWAN). The training was held under the Taiwan ICDF Flood Warning Capacity Improvement for the Belize River Basin Project to enhance the country’s flood warning capabilities. Participants received training areas such as flood disaster prevention and rescue, hydrological data establishment, and disaster management, complemented by visits to various disaster management sites and related national institutions. They also had the opportunity to view Taiwan’s disaster management practices first-hand which will assist in better flood prediction and response as well as disaster mitigation. The Ministry said that the training is important given the threats of flooding and other weather-related disasters that Belize and other countries in the region are facing due to climate change. The official closing of the program was held on Monday, September 25. The closing ceremony was attended by Orlando Habet, Minister of Sustainable Development, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management; H.E. Lily Li-Wen Hsu, Ambassador of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to Belize, as well as other ministry and diplomatic staff.
