PAHO’s Central America Disaster Office to Move to Panama


In the last few years, Panama has become a hub of activity in the field of disaster management, as several UN agencies—among them OCHA, UNICEF, UNDP and WFP—have located their regional offices there. With a view to joining forces to improve coordination of disaster reduction efforts in Central America, PAHO will relocate its subregional disaster office from San Jose, Costa Rica to Panama City at the beginning of 2006. Contact information for the new office will be published in an upcoming issue of this newsletter.
