Final Evaluation of Disaster Risk Reduction with Child and Adolescence Rigths Approach in Siuna and Rosita
The bad and scanty access roads, dispersion of the population, high indexes of illiteracy, violence in families, inaccessibility to the basic services of health and education, unemployment and intensive deterioration of environment, demonstrate the persistence of severe conditions of risk in these communities. This reality aggravates the situation of extreme poverty in many communities, with natural resources available in its geographical space but, without the sufficient organizational and technical aptitude to take advantage of them rationally, diminishing the capacity to answer the risks that they are exposed to and to the basic needs for their survival. This context damages the rights of the girls and boys, conditions which worsen in situations of disasters. The experience of the emergency provoked by the hurricane Félix, in 2007, exceeded the capacity of rapid response of the National System for the Prevention, Mitigation and Attention to Disasters, reflecting weaknesses in the coordination of the institutions that integrate it. For this reason, this project contemplates the strengthening to the governments, the local structures and the communities to contribute to the effective reduction of the risk.
