Asimismo, propondremos una reflexión acerca del papel que juega la planificación del espacio territorial, el manejo de los paisajes y de los servicios ambientales o ecosistémicos, en mantener y aumentar la resiliencia en condiciones de riesgo creciente.

Micro-projects to Strengthen Community Resilience

To build the resilience of 23 communities with a high disaster risk rating, the Partners for Resilience (PfR) run micro projects, applying the integrated approach that combines Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) with Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) and Ecosystem Management and  Restoration (EMR). These communities have analysed their needs and solutions to be dealt with in a micro project. Furthermore, community beneficiaries are trained and their awareness is raised to help them understand how micro projects will contribute to risk reduction, climate change adaptation and ecosystem management and restoration.

(PfR) programme to support the Climate Change Roundtable, to address issues related to the integrated DRR/CCA/EMR4 approach; in other words: not only to be a point of encounter, but also the necessary vehicle towards resilience.
