Poverty over: disasters, case study in Honduras


Worldwide, 90 per cent of disaster-related spending goes on emergency relief and reconstruction. But every £1 spent on disaster risk reduction can save £4 in disaster-response costs. This video shows how Christian Aid has helped a riverside village in Honduras to build an escape route from the storms, floods and landslides that come with the hurricane season each year. Christian Aid helps poor people in disaster-prone areas to understand, prepare for and cope with the threats they face. This includes training in rainfall and river monitoring, alarm systems, evacuation plans, building projects, damage assessment and repair work.
