By Wayne Smith, Jonathan Keyser
A report on CIP's most recent delegation to Cuba focuses on why Cuba's disaster relief model is worth careful study. Galveston Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas and CIP's Wayne Smith led the delegation.
As a follow-on to the 2007 working conference hosted by the Center for International Policy as well as the delegation of U.S. specialists that visited the island in April 2008, this particular delegation, with the support of Atlantic Philanthropies, aimed to compare hurricane preparedness and relief efforts between Galveston and Cuba.
