Insights in DRM, issue 5: from mountains to valleys - An alternative approach to emergency evacuation strategies in Haiti


A Practitioner’s perspective on disaster risk management in Latin America and the Caribbean, May 2014:

This issue highlights the physical and social challenges that Haitians face in the event of hydro-meteorological hazards and explores innovative evacuation strategies, including prototype designs, to address the complex nature of risk in the country. It answers the following questions: If a disaster strikes, how would you protect your family and secure your assets? Could you manage the damages and losses caused in the aftermath? If you lost your home, where would you go for shelter?
