Basseterre,St.Kitts October 14 2020 (SKNVIBES)
 HEAD of the Nevis Disaster Management Agency (NDMA), Brian Dyer believes that the time has come for a proper legislative framework to keep pace with the growing developments on that island. 
His call comes as the Federation joins the rest of the world in recognising today (Oct. 13) as the International Day for Disaster Reduction (IDDR), under the theme: “It’s all about Governance/Good Disaster Risk Governance,” which emphasises the focus towards effective management of a country’s resources in disaster risk reduction.
In calling for more public awareness campaigns, the Director noted that it depends largely on a participatory approach that engages a wide range of stakeholders, adding that: “This strategy involves schools, faith-based organisations, government agencies, the business sector, regional and international partners in the promotion of awareness of disaster prevention and managing disaster risks.”
