“We had the un­for­tu­nate [ex­pe­ri­ence with] the 2013 Christ­mas Eve trough which brought home to us, in a very real way, the fact that we must al­ways be on our guard,” Dr. Fletcher said. “In this chang­ing cli­mate there is no such thing as a safe pe­riod any­more. There is no time when we can rest on our lau­rels and say we have gone through the hur­ri­cane sea­son and there is noth­ing to worry about.”

The Dis­as­ter Vul­ner­a­bil­ity Re­duc­tion Project is led by the Min­istry of Fi­nance and the Min­istry of Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment.

The launch was held at Spin­ners in Union on Tues­day.
