Hurricane Maria Lessons Learned

This booklet is a combination of several best practice recommendations for roof construction following the devastating effects of Hurricane Maria on the Island of Dominica.

This document follows a one-day national consultation held in Dominica, funded by the European Union through the OECS GCCA Project on Climate Change Adaptation and sustainable land management in the Eastern Caribbean and hosted by the Physical Planning Division of Dominica.

Presenters at the consultation comprised of cross-sectoral representatives including architects, contractors, engineers, physical planners, development control officer, bankers, officers of the Bureau of Standards and Custom Department and a historian.

While much of the content of this booklet is supported by the recently revised, GUIDE TO DOMINICA HOUSING STANDARDS and is in line with a number of the following Documents. It does not form part of the National Housing standards, but rather seeks to make recommendations to general stakeholders in the industry.
