Paraguayan government implements early warning system for natural disasters

Source(s):  Eurasia Review

The government of Paraguay and the Ministry of Strategic Communication for Development (SICOM) has started a journey throughout the country with the aim of raising awareness and disseminating information through workshops on environmental protection issues and natural disasters.

“This initiative will update and provide further insight on the natural disasters related and caused by the Plata Basin, will support community based systems in order to prevent and diminish damages caused from natural disasters by communicating with the locals ahead of time. These workshops will have a direct impact for ranchers and the majority of agricultural producers, entrepreneurs in the region, by helping them determine a suitable location for their livestock when a natural disaster or seasonal flooding hits the area as well as it will help increase integration of actions across borders. This project will promote local training and institutional strengthening while slowly training local personnel on these important topics,” told  Mr. Cesar Palacios, the director of Public Media in the Ministry for Strategic Communication for Development (SICOM), to Eurasia Review.
