What We're Watching: Hurricane Fiona: Responding to disasters in island settings
"The Center for Disaster Philanthropy is hosting a webinar to help foundations, corporations and individual donors learn about the storm, the impact of the devastating flooding and how they can help affected communities." The webinar takes place on Thursday, September 22 at 2pm ET. Registration is required.
Regine Webster, vice president of the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, and guest experts will also discuss the differences in island-based disaster recovery.
At the end of the webinar, funders will:
- Have an overview of the flooding and damage impacts from Hurricane Fiona.
- Understand how to best support community organizations working on the ground.
- Learn about the unique needs of disaster response in island communities.
- While aimed at funders, it may also be of interest to emergency managers, academics, disaster responders and NGO staff interested in or working on disasters and other crises.
