Launching of the workshop

From February 19 to 21 a workshop will be held to launch seven projects to promote integrated disaster risk management, reduce the vulnerability of populations and their livelihoods, as well as climate change adaptation measures in Latin American countries.

The workshop, which will take place in the AECID Training Centre of Cartagena de Indias, is aimed at representatives of each of the approved projects that will be financed with European funds under the “Disaster risk reduction and management” component framework, as well as National Focal Points, representatives of the European Union delegations in the countries included in the programme, as well as the technical teams from AECID (Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation) and AFD (French Development Agency).

Potential beneficiaries

The projects approved under this component will have the objective of achieving substantial disaster risk reductions (related to droughts and floods) and they will contribute to the objectives and priorities for action indicated in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, mainly strengthening the capacity for governance and the resilience of societies. They will also pay particular attention to the needs expressed by the countries in their NDCs (or other national policies and plans for climate change).
