Costa Rica emergency fund for animals in disasters

This input paper is a case study review developed by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) for the establishment of the Emergency Fund for Animals in Disasters in Costa Rica. The fund would provide for adequate resources to be available to implement disaster response and recovery procedures, protecting the livelihoods of livestock producers.

The authors demonstrate that this funding system could serve as a model for other Central American countries wanting to protect their livestock from disasters. In this case, this paper can be used to promote these efforts with regional bodies and Ministries of Agriculture in the region.

This document is an input paper of the 2015 Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction.
