The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) in collaboration with the Commission of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) with support from the Caribbean Catastrophe Risk Insurance Facility (CCRIF) SPC is hosting a three-day workshop on Proposal and Grant Writing and Project Management.

The Proposal and Grant Writing Workshop aims to:

  • Build the capacity of community-based organizations to access funding and mobilize resources from Regional and International Development Partners to reduce disaster risks at the community level.
  • Introduce participants to the principles of project management.
  • Assist participants from the three identified vulnerable communities to work on a project proposal for their community that would subsequently be further refined for submission to small grant funding agencies including CCRIF SPC.

This training workshop is a follow-up to the OECS-CCRIF assessment of three (3) vulnerable communities in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (Bequia, Sandy Bay and Langley Park), which took place in 2016 and the outputs included recommendations and action plans for reducing vulnerability in these communities.

The workshop will take place at NEMO’s Conference Room from the 26-28 September, 2017.
