September 2019 marks my visit to the Caribbean island of Curacao, where with colleagues from civil protection forces of various countries, we were testing our preparedness for responding to the humanitarian needs following a potential hurricane. We worked hard, be I also managed to have two free afternoons to see a bit of the island.
This gallery shows some of the images from the exercise itself, and the island (explored during some free time).
The devastating forestal fires of 2019 have ravaged large parts of Amazonia. As Bolivia happened to be one of the most affected countries, I got deployed to La Paz and then to Santa Cruz and villages around Concepcion to assess the situation and recommend the EU response to the humanitarian challenges. The pictures document my trip to the capital of Bolivia, La Paz, as well as disaster struck parts of the country.
