Seminar - From Vulnerability to Resilience: You Choose

The 49th Annual Meeting of the Caribbean Development Bank's Board of Governors takes place from June 2 to 7, in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Meeting programme includes a memorial lecture, seminars and a youth outreach initiative. 'From Vulnerability to Resilience: You Choose' is one of the discussion topics of this year's Meeting.

The panel discussion led by CDB’s Chairman and Minister of Planning and Development, Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, The Honourable Camille Robinson-Regis, will provide context to the multi-dimensional nature of vulnerability and resilience in CDB’s Borrowing Member Countries.  It will draw attention to best practice solutions and policies to arrest the challenges associated with these vulnerabilities. Panelists will be provided with an opportunity to share perspectives and engage participants in a discussion on how the Region can best treat with its vulnerabilities; and build resilience as it moves along the path of economic and social transformation towards sustainable growth and development.
