Development Programmes

Trocaire Central America Disaster Risk Reduction Programme

Central America is particularly prone to natural disasters. This in addition to changing weather patterns threatens food security for communities which predominantly rely on subsistence farming and agricultural jobs.
Weak public structures for disaster prevention leave communities dependant on self-help and aid agencies.

This programme supports partners to engage with communities, government and aid agencies to develop effective Disaster Risk Reduction and emergency preparedness strategies.
