Mission

Established in 1988, CEPREDENAC is the specialized institution of the Central American Integration System for natural disaster prevention, mitigation and response. The Governments of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama are active members, while in 2008 Belize and Dominican Republic are in the process of becoming members. CEPREDENAC's inter-sectoral agenda is harmonized with other specialized regional entities in areas as hydrological resources, agriculture, nutrition and food security.

Disaster Reduction Goal

The Regional Disaster Reduction Plan (PRRD) aims at contributing to disaster reduction as an integral part of the sustainability of Central American societies. Its strategic objectives are: promoting the incorporation of disaster risk reduction in legislation, policies; enhancing and developing greater resilience of the population to disaster risk; and promoting the incorporation of disaster risk analysis in the design and implementation of prevention, mitigation, response, recovery and reconstruction in the countries of the region (PRRD 2006-2015).
