CDEMA Virtual Library

This webpage contains a header with the CDEMA and CRIS logos and the banner for the virtual library has text in white and graphics of a glowing lighbulb, a pink book and a white laptop with books seeming to come out of the screen

This virtual library was curated by the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) through its Caribbean Risk Information System (CRIS). The CDEMA website notes that "CRIS is a multi-faceted virtual platform that hosts risk management data and information accessible to stakeholders to facilitate analysis, research, greater awareness of risk management and climate change adaptation in the region. The CRIS contributes to the region’s sustainable development efforts by enhancing and strengthening disaster risk and climate change information sharing to drive evidence-based decision-making processes at all levels. Through its three major components (GeoCRIS, Virtual Library and Databases), stakeholders can access a range of information products to benefit CDEMA’s 19 participating states...The virtual library hosts documents including CDEMA and partner products, climate change adaptation information and CDM Sector resources."

According to CDEMA, "this phase of the Caribbean Risk Information System (CRIS) has been developed in collaboration with the World Bank with financial support from the European Union (EU) in the framework of the ACP-EU Natural Disaster Risk Reduction Program, managed by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery."
