The National Office of Disaster Services (NODS) has partnered with the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) to host a four-day workshop on how best the implications for men and women can be assessed as it relates to early warning and flood forecasting.

The workshop entitled “Mainstreaming gender in End-to-End Early Warning System for Flood Forecasting and Integrated Flood Risk Management” began Tuesday at Dennis’ at Ffreys Beach.

It brought together individuals representing the Gender Departments, the Met Offices and the Disaster Offices from St. Kitts/Nevis, Montserrat, Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands and Dominica.

The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) and the Caribbean Meteorological Organisation (CMO) are also participating.

  1. Shouldn’t the same “atmospheric scientists” who tell us that the earth is doomed in 10 years, with 100 percent certainty be able to warn of impending disasters at least months in advance?

  2. ONE THOUGHT or TWO
    STEM…STEM….STEM!!! STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics.
    Pre-K to tertiary! Our education system MUST PRIORITIZE STEM and business curriculum powered by our OECS and Caricom creative Arts (consciousness) in EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL and INSTITUTION year-round – in school, after school activities, summer.
    Our economic growth and social development REQUIRE that transformation from the colonial education for elite management and unskilled labor.
    We must get rid of our STEM INFERIORITY COMPLEX! STEM is achievable and rewarding for everyone, man and woman.
    We must want to know STEM and business principles so that we can apply the knowledge as a career choice to start and build enterprises, get things done to produce something of value.
    Everything in life is related to STEM!

    Respect!
