Regional strategy for disaster risk management in the agriculture sector and food and nutrition security in Latin America and the Caribbean (2018-2030)

The Regional Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in the Agriculture Sector and Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) was developed under the leadership of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which identified the need for a common tool to foster the collaboration and coordination among its member states with regards to DRM and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in the agriculture sector.

The Strategy will foster collaborative, coordinated and coherent work amongst countries while prioritizing regional, sub-regional, multi-country and cross-border added-value measures that complement national actions for implementing the Sendai Framework within the agriculture and FNS sector.

The Strategy is first and foremost directed towards integrants of the Ministries of Agriculture and Rural Development and seeks to strengthen family farming in particular as the most vulnerable sector and that which is also the most affected by disasters. Agricultural production is likewise considered from a livelihoods perspective, emphasizing its connection with the FNS of small-scale producers and the population as a whole.
