PCDPPP: Background

Quoted from page 30 of B. Carby, 2011, Caribbean Implementation of the Hyogo Framework For Action - HFA Mid-Term Review, Disaster Risk Reduction Centre, University of the West Indies, Jamaica and United Nations Development Programme, Cuba.

"In 1981 the Pan-Caribbean Disaster Preparedness and Prevention Project (PCDPPP) was established to spearhead a regional effort to improve disaster preparedness in the Caribbean. The project had its headquarters in Antigua, and was supported by the United Nations Disaster Relief Organisation (UNDRO), the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Pan-American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation (PAHO/WHO) and the Red Cross as well as Canada, the United Kingdom and the European Economic Community. Initially conceived as a short term project, it eventually ran for nearly ten years, adding prevention to its mandate and it became the Pan-Caribbean Disaster Preparedness and Prevention Project (PCDPPP). The project did much to raise the awareness of countries in the region to the importance of preparedness and prevention, where previously response and relief had been emphasised."
