Housing resilience and financing symposium: addressing challenges and enhancing collaboration

The Housing Resilience and Financing Symposium will take place from March 13th to 14th, 2024, at the Goodwill Parish Hall in Roseau, Dominica. This strategic initiative aims to engage critical stakeholders from the housing,
disaster risk management, climate resilience, and financing sectors to address challenges and foster collaboration in enhancing housing resilience.

The symposium, envisioned as a platform to foster collaboration and synergy, and share experiences, will focus on three specific objectives:

1. Enhancing Resilience: Through the exchange of knowledge and information gained from the implementation of housing reconstruction projects and resilience trainings.

2. Fostering Partnerships: By spearheading collaborative initiatives between the public and private sectors.

3. Developing a Roadmap for Investments: In disaster risk and climate resilience finance within the housing sector.

The event will cover various topics including housing resilience challenges and opportunities, regulations for resilience, and financing mechanisms for climate-resilient projects in the housing sector. It will involve the participation of stakeholders from public institutions, housing developers, financial institutions, international organizations, businesses engaged in resilience interventions for the housing sector, and academia.

The symposium is expected to yield several outcomes, including enhanced resilience awareness among public institutions, strengthened partnerships between the public and private sectors, and the development of a roadmap for disaster resilience investments in the housing sector.

“Building a Resilient Public Service: A Collective Response”

The tentative agenda for the two-day event includes technical presentations, roundtable discussions, and an exhibit showcasing innovations, services, and products related to housing sector resilience.

The symposium promises to be an insightful and collaborative event aimed at advancing housing resilience in Dominica and beyond.

    This press release appears to originate from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM).

    But surely, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development should be taking the lead in this initiative and by extension, the Physical Planning Division .

    Henceforward, should I direct all my enquiries related to planning, housing and urban development to the Office of the Prime Minister?
