Strengthening Disaster Resilience in Small States: Commonwealth Perspectives offers timely and expert analysis of differentiated exposure of small states to natural disasters, including an examination of specific interventions for strengthening small states' resilience to this phenomenon.

This book explores cutting-edge disaster risk reduction techniques useful for informing small states' economic and disaster risk management policies, with the aim of collating and sharing important lessons with member governments, and galvanising international efforts for reducing the impact of natural disasters.

This volume highlights transformative perspectives drawn from expert discussions and analyses of a select number of topics, including, environmental governance; information and communication technologies (ICT), capacity-building, gender and blockchain. The book also provides a ready and accessible resource for policy makers in small states, experts, academia, private sector, civil society as well as the general public.



A Knowledge Management Initiative in Support of the Caribbean Comprehensive Disaster Management Framework and DRM Capacity Building

This chapter presents a knowledge management project that was developed in support of the Comprehensive Disaster Management Strategy and Framework, the regional framework which guides disaster risk management in the countries of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM). The project is compared to elements of the UN International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR) IKM4DRR Scorecard and suggestions are made for sustaining project outcomes. Creation of a virtual space for co-production of knowledge for the CARICOM disaster risk management community is proposed to support continued development of disaster risk management (DRM) capacity in the region.
