RG-T3752 : The Cities of the Day After. Local Observatories of Natural, Humanitarian and Sanitary Disasters in Latin America and the Caribbean cities
Project Status: Implementation
Strengthen local emergency response systems, through the installation of a network of Local Observatories for Natural, Humanitarian and Health Disasters. These Observatories will strengthen capacities at the local level in crisis situations, being reliable sources of information, providing action protocols to effectively manage the emergency and take advantage of opportunities during recovery, applying Decision Making Action Protocols (PATD for its Spanish Acronym), today with emphasis in COVID-19 but applicable to future disasters. PADT is understood as the set of city operating protocols, monitoring indicators, response strategies and crisis recovery. The RPG will pilot the installation of Observatories in at least three cities of different characteristics (intermediate, border, and metropolitan) where it will operate using PATD and will seek to generate replication mechanisms through dialogue between cities and the identification of replicating organisms in the other LAC cities.
