During the first half of 2018, CENACED organised workshops to identify volunteers and manage a volunteer program for disaster response.

The network also supported micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and civil society organisations to improve their business continuity in a case of an emergency. 

After the earthquake in 2017, CENACED has also continued to build housing in the states of Oaxaca, Chiapas and Morelos. CENACED will build 905 houses in total. 

CENACED also participated in the VI Regional Platform for Disaster Reduction held in Cartagena, Colombia, speaking in a session "Preparation and execution of recovery: public-private partnerships".
