2019 Workshop, St. Thomas, Usvi

 
 

Take Action

 

Weeks 8

“Know your risk! Where are you located and what are your vulnerabilities?” Such was the main message of this workshop component. Equally important is having awareness of your assets’ risks. Where are they? What are their vulnerabilities? How can some of these risks be reduced?

Participants gained the ability to:

  • Determine which of their assets are exposed to harm

  • Assess each asset’s vulnerabilities

  • Estimate the risk to each asset

  • Document community assets and vulnerabilities

  • Consider how community transfer projects reduce some of the risks
