This follows the recent training of 25 persons in the tourism and culture sectors by the Planning Institute of Jamaica with support from the Caribbean Development Bank and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
Jamaica's economy is dependent on tourism and heritage resources which are exposed to climate change and other natural hazards.
These include world famous beaches, historical monuments and heritage sites.
Participants in the workshop series included representatives from the Ministry of Tourism; the Tourism Product Development Company; the Ministry of Culture and the Jamaica National Heritage Trust.
The participants of the training were engaged in a field exercise in Port Royal during which a mock post disaster needs assessment of cultural and tourism resources was conducted.
