Visiting disaster preparedness projects in Salta

Salta, Argentina, December 2021

It is time to travel again. Tomorrow, I am off to Salta in northern Argentina, where I will be visiting some of the disaster preparedness projects that we are running at the indigenous communities together with our partners. The focus of the projects is related to dealing with flash floods, droughts and forestal fires, which are all very common in the area and make the population slip into humanitarian crises when they occur.

Preparing for disasters constitutes core of our activities in the Americas. Our projects derive from a conviction that the more prepared you are, the cheaper and easier it is to deal with the consequences when they eventually come.

As usual, I will be reporting my trip with pictures, and will make sure that you have a link to the images soon!
