The strategic period has been lengthened from five to 10 years to reflect the reality that meaningful developmental change at the community and sectoral levels takes time. The CDM Strategy 2014 - 2024 builds on the strengths of wellfounded and functional governance structures. It is designed to continue the process of embedding and institutionalising CDM as the Caribbean’s platform for achieving risk reduction. It proposes to do this over the 10-year strategic period by expanding the original key sectors embraced (Agriculture, Tourism, Health, Civil Society and Education) to include Finance/Economic Development and Physical and Environmental Planning. Additionally it places increased focus on integrating disaster risk reduction and climate change considerations and their impact on vulnerable groups.
