Business sustainability and minimum down time

As St. Lucia and the rest of the region starts to place more focused attention on the hurricane season, the Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce continues to encourage its members and the wider business community to proactively protect their investments and livelihoods by designing and workable business continuity plan. 

This is part of the Chamber’s commitment to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction which it has indicated by leading a national ARISE Network. 

The commitment has been deepened by the Chamber’s active participation in the Unite Project which brings together five Caribbean Francophone Countries to work together, share experiences and learn from each other in a five thematic areas including Disaster Risk Reduction.

This was the second Business Continuity Planning Workshop hosted in 2019 by the Chamber, and this one was equally enthusiastically received by participants. 

Working closely with NEMO and utilizing the expertise of their Trainer combined with the knowledge of recently trained (Unite and UNDRR) Caron Charlemagne the practical and powerful training session took place on June 13th and 14th 2019 at the Coco Resorts. Seventeen participants took part in a highly interactive and informative training program.
