Andean Strategy for Disaster Risk Management –EAGRD– Decision 819
The 819 Decision has been aproved in the Quadragesimal Summit of the Andean Council of Foreign Affairs Ministry in an Amplified Reunion with the Titular Representatives before the Andean Community Commission, the 9th May 2017 in the city of Lima.
Two years after the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the goal set by the Andean Community (regional organizational composed of Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru) is the implementation of a new road map for disaster risk management in which prevention is recognized as a priority standard to reduce and mitigate the effects of natural and man-made events that may lead to disaster situations.
The main objective of the EAGRD is to minimize risk disasters situations through institutional strengthening, establishing regional policies and strategies that can promote sustainable development and social inclusion in the Andean countries.
