UNDRR Americas and the Caribbean Webinar: Disaster Risk Management and Institutional Response to the COVID-19 Crisis | Los Sistemas Nacionales de Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres en el contexto de la crisis del COVID-19 (Spanish-English interpretation available)
National risk and emergency management systems in the Americas and Caribbean are engaging in different ways and adopting different commitments in the governance of the current COVID 19 crisis. This approach has been neither planned nor foreseen and has been uneven in many ways: from countries where the Systems have played an important role, to countries where they have had virtually no intervention. The emergency or disaster laws of many countries have been the foundation for actions taken during and after the emergency.
