CGI ACTION NETWORK: POST-DISASTER RECOVERY
This year, at the invitation of the leaders of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Antigua & Barbuda, and Dominica, the Clinton Foundation launched an Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery. The Action Network will convene for a meeting on April 3rd at
the University of Miami, where stakeholders will continue to work towards Commitments to Action to address the on-going immediate response needs, as well as the long-term recovery in the region.
This Action Network builds from the successful Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) model, where leaders from across sectors convene to mobilize resources and implement solutions to addressing pressing global challenges. The Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery is focusing on five key areas: energy, infrastructure, health, education, and economic development.
Representing the Vieques community at this meeting will be Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust Executive Director
Lirio Marquez and Trust Board member Linda LaViolette.
