This Disaster Risk Information Platform (DRIP) is a compilation of risk information that serves to inform local decision for the Parish of St. Catherine. The DRIP will serve as a tool to identify, analyze and disseminate lessons learnt, good practices, technologies and tools for disaster risk reduction. DRIP is an integrated geo-risk information portal, and should become a one-stop shop to access risk- and risk assessment-related information for the parish. Navigate this portal through the menus above sorted by organizations and datasets. The primary target audience are representatives from various organizations with the mandate of providing critical risk information necessary to this information platform as well as disaster risk reduction practitioners, local community users, governments, educational institutions and many different NGO organizations.
