CDM FORUM Jamaica Cecil Bailey ODPEM March 20, 2006
Presentation Outline The CDM Strategy Historical Background CDM - Jamaica Institutional initiatives & Programme initiatives Way forward
The CDM Strategy What is Comprehensive Disaster Management (CDM)? Integrated management of all hazards Integrate disaster management into planning and development Management of all phases of Disaster Management Cycle: –Prevention and Mitigation –Preparedness and Response –Recovery and Restoration/Rehabilitation VULNERABILITY AND RISK REDUCTION
Historical context - Jamaica The ODPEM has always advocated and pursued such an approach. –1993 legislation “Objective of the office shall be to advance disaster preparedness and emergency management measures in Jamaica by facilitating and co-coordinating the development and implementation of integrated disaster management systems” “Encouraging and supporting disaster preparedness and mitigation measures in all the parishes in collaboration with the local government authorities, community based organizations and the private and voluntary agencies respectively.”
Historical context - Jamaica Has led to a general inclusive approach which was clearly in sync with the broad objective of CDM Reflected in our National Disaster Management Framework.

CDM - Jamaica Presentation made at NDO management retreat. CDM consultation held with key stakeholder agencies. NDO strategic plan reviewed to include key CDM objectives.
CDM Results Framework GOAL Sustainable Development in the Caribbean region SO: Comprehensive Disaster Management is integrated into the development processes of CDERA member countries. IR-1: Stronger regional and national institutions promote CDM. IR-2: Research and training support CDM. IR-3: Regional institutions and donors incorporate CDM in their own programs and promote CDM to their national members/client. IR-4: Preparedness, response and mitigation capability is enhanced and integrated. IR-5: Hazard information is incorporated into development planning and decision making.
IR-1: Stronger regional and national institutions promote CDM IR-1.1. CDERA restructured and reorganized to effectively support adoption of CDM by its member countries. IR-1.2. National Disaster Organizations strengthened to support CDM. IR-1.3. Other research and data partners in region strengthened and rationalized to support CDM.
IR-1.2. National Disaster Organizations strengthened to support CDM. Institutional Activities –Review of the ODPEM Legislation –Institutional review conducted to determine best structure etc. required Organizational review currently underway –Improvement in the equipment available for use; GIS, LCD, NEMHS, Large Flat panel screens, sat. phones, new comms. equipment, repeaters. –Linkages with international DM agencies Washington DC, France/ Martinique –Professional/technical exchanges/internship programme to develop skills in key response agencies - CUSO
IR-1.2. National Disaster Organizations strengthened to support CDM. Programme Activities –Design and institute an organizational structure that satisfies work requirements –Ensure that ODPEM has the authority and power needed to achieve its objectives Legislation –Exchange programme with DC emergency mgmt. –Source and utilize technical expertise in GIS. CUSO volunteer.
IR-2: Research, Education and Training support CDM IR-2.1. Curricula and programs at regional and national educational institutions support hazard management and link to environmental management. IR-2.2. Regional research and technology institutions established capabilities –incl. access to latest technologies in hazard assessment, mapping and warning systems. IR-2.3. Research applied to specific local circumstances ; information on hazards, vulnerabilities and protective measures widely available.
IR-2.1. Curricula and programs at regional and national educational institutions support hazard management and link to environmental management. Institutional Activities –Strengthened Partnerships with MoE and other educational stakeholders Programme Activities –Development of Disaster Management material for inclusion in school curriculum –Execute projects to strengthen disaster management information and approaches in schools – UNICEF –Strengthen sensitization programme in schools –Competitions and exhibitions annually in schools – (cooking comp. poster comp.)
IR-2.3. Research applied to specific local circumstances ; information on hazards, vulnerabilities and protective measures widely available. Institutional Activities –Establishment of a projects unit to develop projects and source funding to support NDO priorities (predates CDM) –Acquisition of relevant technology –Partnerships strengthened with relevant partner agencies.- MGD, WRA
IR-2.3. Research applied to specific local circumstances ; information on hazards, vulnerabilities and protective measures widely available. Programme activities –Development and dissemination of hazard specific brochures. –Activities developed to support projects which fund research on hazards and vulnerability mapping. – Portland, St. Mary –Production and dissemination of reports on hazard impacts etc. –Use of GIS and GPS technology to aid research and do vulnerability assessments –Carry out sector specific research to determine vulnerabilities and recommend strategies to reduce vulnerability – Tourism, Agriculture.
IR-3: Regional institutions and donors incorporate CDM in their programs and promote CDM to national members/clients IR-3.1. Donors to the region adopt consistent policies requiring due attention to hazard assessment and mitigation measures in project approvals. IR-3.2. Organizations representing key economic sectors actively promote CDM to their constituents and on their behalf. IR-3.3. Insurance and finance industries in the region actively support CDM.
IR-4: Preparedness, response and mitigation capability is enhanced and integrated IR-4.1. Disaster management legislation supports CDM. IR-4.2. Comprehensive disaster management plans in place, tested and reviewed annually. IR-4.3. Emergency operations facilities adequately equipped and operational. IR-4.4. Lifelines and critical infrastructure protected with mitigation measures. IR-4.5. Mitigation included in response, recovery and reconstruction actions.
IR-4.1. Disaster management legislation supports CDM. Institutional Activities –1993 originally supported CDM objectives –New legislation will strengthen NDO authority and ability to carry out CDM objectives Programme Activities –Actively advocate for legislation to be reviewed and to lead the process of review – Host stakeholder workshops for review process –Develop regulations for reviewed legislation
