The Ministry of Local Government and Community Development says it is committed to the facilitation of gender mainstreaming and values the importance of gender equality in disaster risk reduction.


“Let me underscore the commitment of the ministry in gender mainstreaming by indicating that we have every intention of establishing gender focal points within the 14 municipal corporations islandwide,” [Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Desmond McKenzie] said.

“This is to send a strong message that gender mainstreaming is not only a focus at the central government level, but it is a focus for us in local governance and at the community level. It is a way of life for us at the ministry,” the minister added.
