A new approach to mapping risk and resilience: Caribbean Cyclone Cartography

It’s International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction!

We know that it's those with limited access to shelter and resources who are worst affected by natural disasters, and who rarely receive the long-term support necessary. As these disasters become more common and more extreme, International Day for Disaster RIsk Reduction seeks to highlight creative, community-led approaches to protecting against these events 

Last year, we sat down with Dr Adom Philogene Heron and Gabrielle Abraham to talk about Caribbean Cyclone Cartography. The project is working to map cyclone resilience in Dominica, and doing so in a way that represents not only the physical landscape of the island, but also the local histories and knowledge which inform people's understanding of risks and their responses to it.

  • My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – blackgeographers.com – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like blackgeographers.com will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    You can make it super-simple for them to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket… thanks to Talk With Web Visitor.
