CRID has just added two “minikits” to its new series of information packets (refer to the previous issue to see what these information tools are all about). The subjects chosen this time are risk mapping and community participation. The packet on risk mapping contains information on their use, information leaflets, examples of risk maps prepared in Honduran communities, and other resources such as methodologies, experiences and lessons learned, links and contacts. In the packet on community participation you will find a document on community disaster preparedness in national development, and guidelines for community organization and for training and community education, as well as links, contacts and more. Visit CRID’s website at www.crid.or.cr for more information.
