Workshop - Learning from social and environmental histories to build resilient solutions for disaster risk reduction in the Caribbean – Monday 22 May, Cancun, Mexico.

Effective disaster risk management (DRM) requires an understanding of the social capacity of potentially affected communities, the environments in which they live and work, and the economic activities that these environments support. The resilience of communities and environments depends on their histories, including patterns of settlement, culture, politics, environmental degradation and stressors.
