Twenty-one individuals from various organisations and the private and public sectors concluded a four-day training in Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) on Thursday at the Multi-purpose Cultural Centre.
The training was hosted by the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) under the UNDP EnGenDER Project funded by Global Affairs Canada, the UNDP Panama Regional Hub and the National Office of Disaster Services (NODS).
Participants were taken through the PDNA process looking at the difference between disaster effects and disaster impacts, calculating damage and loss, examining recovery needs and implementing a recovery strategy for a territory impacted by a disaster.
It is hoped that coming out of the training a team could be established to engage in assessments in Antigua and Barbuda and CDEMA member states after a disaster hits.
