Grenada. June 11-15, 2018​. The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in support of the National Disaster Management Agency of Grenada (NadMA), conducted two workshops on Shelter Management, in the cities St. George and St. Patrick, in Grenada; with the objective of building the capacity of district shelter management committees and shelter management team capacity to contribute to an effective shelter response with international standards.
