DRR before and after Hurricane Mitch

21 Jun 2018, UNISDR

Hurricane Mitch marked a “before and after” for Central America's approach to disaster risk reduction. Six Central American countries created organisations responsible for the management of risk reduction to support the implementation of laws and policies in national programmes. They have also put in place ways to measure risk and evaluate the impact of disasters.
