Saint Kitts and Nevis: Natural hazard mitigation policy and plan

The Natural Hazard Mitigation Policy and Plan hereinafter called The Plan, presents proactive approaches for reducing the vulnerability of the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis to natural hazards through enhancing the capacity for mitigation and influencing the practice of mitigation activities.

The Plan forms part of a broader programme of support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through its USAIDJamaica/Caribbean Regional Programme (USAID-J/CAR), which has established a programme in response to the damage from Hurricane Georges which struck the Federation in September 1998. Implementation of the programme for disaster mitigation capacity building, referred to as the PostGeorges Disaster Mitigation (PGDM) Programme has been undertaken by the Organisation of American States (OAS).
