Description of project

    • The heads of state at the Iberia-American Summit (Santiago de Chile, Chile, November 2007), concerned by the damage natural disasters cause to the countries of the region, commissioned the SEGIB to hold a meeting of expert to evaluate the possibility of establishing a simplified Ibero-American mechanism to respond to emergencies and contingencies caused by natural disasters, as well as the possibility of creating a development fund to respond to these disasters. SEGIB took in contact with DARA for the technical assistance in the develop of the “Mapping and Identification of Mechanisms and Development Funding to Respond to Disaster Emergencies in Latin America”.
    • This mapping document was distributed and debated in the meeting on “Natural Disaster Response Mechanisms” that was held in Mexico City in September 2008.
