Ministry of Agrarian, Land and Urban Development (SEDATU) - Urban Resilience Profile in Playa del Carmen

26 May 2017
09:00 - 13:30
Playa del Carmen

The participants will visit Playa del Carmen in Quintana Roo to observe the progress of the Urban Resilience Profile project, in which international guidelines for disaster risk reduction have been implemented in the city. It will be seen how federal and municipal authorities have adapted the essential tenets of the Sendai
Framework in the local plan of action for resilience to the threats imposed by living in a disaster-prone area. In this specific site, torrential winds and rains caused by cyclonic events represent a risk of disaster, as well as sinking and collapse due to the geological variability of the region.
