Title: Fundamentals of disaster management: Implications for Disaster Teaching and Research in the Caribbean
Authors: Collymore, Jeremy
Issue Date: 27-Jan-2005
Publisher: CDERA
Abstract: This paper argues that better structured institutional frameworks are indispensable for any sustained progress in disaster management, especially in small island states. With respect to disaster teaching and research in the Caribbean, there is a call for a re-assessment of teaching and research to better address the challenges of current hazards and those that are emerging as part of the globalisation process.
