Hurricane Maria is regarded as the worst natural disaster in the history of Dominica. Given the uniqueness of the hurricane, the impact on the state coupled with the role of the diaspora in information communications this the new operating environment for many humanitarian actors, including CDAC Network Members that are present on the ground have articulated the need to reflect together on their experiences and create a common narrative of what happened. This includes highlighting examples of good practice, examining where and why challenges arose, and working together to develop goals and strategies for the next disaster response. It is hoped this review will help build an idea of what a successful communication and community engagement response looks like in this context, and map what is needed from different actors to achieve this. The role of the diaspora is also critical in the communications and information flows and the CDAC network would like to explore this.
