Peru is a country highly prone to natural hazards that can generate devastating effects. We work with neighborhoods and communities to reduce disaster risks and build the capacities of local and regional governments to include these approaches in their policies. We put emphasis on protecting and promoting the participation of the most vulnerable populations, such as people with disabilities, older adults, pregnant women, indigenous people, children and adolescents, among others.
We build the capacities of the local and regional governments for emergency preparedness and response, so that changes are sustainable. We work in five sectors: WASH, SHELTER, Education, Protection and Health.
