Natural disasters are major adverse events like floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other geological processes. A natural disaster can cause loss of life or property damage and typically leaves substantial economic damage in its wake. The growing global impact of human activity on the environment is set to further exacerbate these problems.
Natural Disasters and Climate Change is a collection of projects focused on building capacity around the topic of climate change and its consequences, like training communities to build early alert devices for natural disasters or rethinking strategies to approach disaster relief.
- Community Gardens Initiative
This initiative engages your school or community to plant a garden that provides home-grown, healthy food for local residents, while reducing your ecological footprint and teaching young and old about the benefits of local food production in the fight against climate change.
- Risk Lab (Laboratorio de Riesgo)
Risk Lab is a solution developed by Pacifico, an innovative company based in Chile that uses creativity and new technologies to help vulnerable communities reduce the risks created by natural disasters and climate change.
This program is the coordinated action of diverse social actors to guarantee access to water that is safe for human consumption, production, and sanitation, while emphasizing local empowerment and community management of the water systems.
