Guidelines and recommendations for the Implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction in the agriculture and food security and nutrition sector – Latin America and the Caribbean

This publication is the result of a consultation process led by FAO and UNISDR during 2016 in light of the release of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. It sought the identification of key elements for its implementation in the agriculture sector (crops, livestock, forests, fisheries and aquiculture), as a recognition of the responsibility held by the sector to contribute to disaster risk reduction.

This publication is based on the experience of a wide range of people from the public sector that face on a daily basis the consequences of disaster risk and climate change in agriculture of Latin American and Caribbean countries. It is expected to be a source of inspiration towards the formulation and implementation of policies that increase the resilience of agricultural livelihoods and, specifically, of the most vulnerable producers to hazards and disasters within the climate change context.
