The CDMHA undertakes education, training and research
in the areas of disaster management and humanitarian assistance with a focus on
Latin America and the Caribbean.
The CDMHA seeks to build partnerships with nations, NGOs and
other key disaster management organizations and help increase
operational readiness in order to meet the diverse humanitarian needs
of that area.
The CDMHA is also dedicated to the transfer of
new knowledge and appropriate technology through the university sector
to improve responsiveness during times of crisis.
By facilitating, underwriting and co-sponsoring activities such
as educational course development, conferences and research projects,
the CDMHA further supports disaster and crisis managers, technicians
and field personnel.
Cooperation in the civil-military
sector is also enhanced through such ventures. More
