These meetings included a Damage Assessment and Needs Analysis, National Human Resources Committee meeting, a meeting to review the roles and improve the efficiency of public officers, a National Emergency Operations Center training and a meeting with NEMO international partners. The meetings focused on how Belize would be assisted in the aftermath of an impact from a major disaster such as a category 5 hurricane.
