Puerto Rico’s long-term recovery from 2017 hurricane disaster dominates the news outlets, and are bringing to light very interesting reconstruction issues in just one sector, the Energy Sector.
Other sectors in building a more resilient community for PR must be reviewed.
Not only for PR, but for all the other island nations of the Caribbean. Water & food sectors are areas of vital concern, and the housing\compliance sectors are sectors that must be reviewed daily for transparency and innovative ideas with full ‘WHOLE COMMUNITY’ participation in building more resilient communities.
Thanks to all (news media, others) for bringing to light. Public documents, are just that public documents. FOIA (Freedom of Information Act, https://www.foia.gov/), are vital to all communities for transparency, and to address the issues of those responsible for our protection and interests, are truly protecting OUR INTERESTS, and OUR LIVES.
