Disaster Reduction Goal

The Regional Disaster Reduction Plan (PRRD) aims at contributing to disaster reduction as an integral part of the sustainability of Central American societies. Its strategic objectives are: promoting the incorporation of disaster risk reduction in legislation, policies; enhancing and developing greater resilience of the population to disaster risk; and promoting the incorporation of disaster risk analysis in the design and implementation of prevention, mitigation, response, recovery and reconstruction in the countries of the region (PRRD 2006-2015).

The organization has no registered commitments.

The Sendai Framework Voluntary Commitments (SFVC) online platform allows stakeholders to inform the public about their work on DRR. The SFVC online platform is a useful toolto know who is doing what and where for the implementation of the Sendai Framework, which could foster potential collaboration among stakeholders. All stakeholders (private sector, civil society organizations, academia, media, local governments, etc.) working on DRR can submit their commitments and report on their progress and deliverables.'|t }}
