This country document for Saint Lucia represents a collaborative effort between DIPECHO partners in country and national authorities to provide a country document for Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). This document aims not only to orient ECHO/DIPECHO funding as with previous Country Documents, but based on the common format for such documents developed in 2012 through the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), provide a more holistic approach to DRR at the country level and are geared towards DIPECHO partners in country, national authorities including sectoral ministries, the international community, civil society and NGOs, academia, other ISDR system partners and all interested parties in DRR and disaster risk management. The document was made possible through financing from the European Union within the framework of the 2011-2012 DIPECHO Action Plan.
