Caribbean Disaster Information network

Description The Caribbean Disaster Information Network (CARDIN) was established in June 1999 to provide linkages with Caribbean disaster organizations, to widen the scope of the collection of disaster related information and to ensure improved access to such material. The project is funded by the European Community Humanitarian Office (ECHO) . The Library of the University of the West Indies at Mona, has been selected as the focal point for disaster information in the Caribbean. CARDIN, in collaboration with its partners, seeks to provide a new and dynamic approach to accessing and disseminating disaster related information in a manner that adequately prepares and minimizes the effect of disasters in the Caribbean Region. This will be achieved through the collection, indexing and dissemination of disaster information to produce a comprehensive database which encompasses the English, French, Spanish and Dutch speaking Caribbean. The main beneficiaries are Government Agencies, Planning Unit Statisticians Policy Makers, Researchers, General Public and Students.
