Mission

The St. Kitts - Nevis Observer is published each Friday by the St. Kitts - Nevis Publishing Association. It is distributed throughout St. Kitts and Nevis, as well as Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, and the US Virgin Island's St. Croix and St. Thomas.

The Observer is a politically independent publication.

The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.
