PORTLAND, Maine - Feb. 28, 2020 - PRLog -- Readiness Associates, a national consulting firm that helps clients prepare for natural and man-made disasters, has joined a United Nations-affiliated committee tasked with reducing disaster risk on the Caribbean nation of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.

Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), a dual-island nation with a population of approximately 1.4 million, sits off the coast of Venezuela. T&T has suffered damage and destruction from recent natural disasters and inclement weather patterns.

Readiness Associates will serve on the American Chamber of Commerce of Trinidad and Tobago's (AMCHAM T&T) Private Sector Alliance for Resilient Societies (ARISE) committee. ARISE T&T is an initiative, in conjunction with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR), working toward a resilient, prosperous future where fewer lives are lost to disasters; capital assets and investments are risk-informed; and infrastructure is resilient to natural and man-made hazards.

Through this initiative, AMCHAM T&T will seek to educate companies on business resilience and reduce the country's risks in relation to flooding and earthquake preparedness.

"Our nation needs a comprehensive disaster resiliency plan that integrates climate change considerations into priority sectors to allow for the appropriate interventions," said Patricia Ghany, president of AMCHAM T&T, when the initiative was announced last fall.

"While the greatest facet of our humanity often emerges in these perilous times, it goes without saying that the relief from natural disasters should not be left solely to the charitable acts from private citizens and companies," Ghany said.

"Communities are systems and, as such, each business entity in a community has a vital role to play as well as interdependencies with the others," said Vernon Jeffery, Readiness Associates chief strategist. "One thing we do is to help business leaders see risk from a community perspective, which brings new awareness for creative risk-reduction strategies."
