Reducing flood risks in Panama City

Upon request by the Municipality and supported by Wetlands International, a Dutch Risk Reduction team evaluated ways to address the flood risk problems in Panama City. We have worked together with local authorities and communities to conserve mangrove ecosystems and associated areas, working in the mangroves on the Pacific Coast, specifically Chiriquí and Bahía de Panamá. In 2019, we started restoration actions in the Darien region, as well as on the Caribbean Coast in the Province of Colón.
