The seismic network in Dominica will receive an upgrade

The Hon. Minister for Justice, Immigration and National  Security, Rayburn Blackmoore, says Government is taking proactive measures to manage the country’s disaster risk.

He says, “Under the World Bank Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Project, funds have been allocated to further upgrade the seismic network on this island. The Office of Disaster Management has been mandated to draw up the terms of reference for a consultant.”

Close to US $40m has been allocated.

The project seeks to measurably reduce Dominica’s vulnerability to natural hazards and the impact of climate change in this case, its vulnerability to earthquakes and the like.
