Volunteers sought to help our colleagues in the Caribbean

As we all know the countries and territories of the Caribbean were hit by a series of Hurricanes in September.  Since then, a small team from the IAOS, the  ISI and Statistics without Borders (SwB) have been  working with regional partners such as Caricom and the Inter-American Statistical Institute (IASI) to identify areas where the NSOs may need help.

There is an urgent need to help with  mapping of many of the critical disaster hit areas, assess the current status of the statistical offices/agencies worst affected by the disasters, as well as more general support to help the region reduce its data vulnerability.

We are seeking calls of interest from statisticians who can assist.  Please contact SwB (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or IAOS (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
