In order to offer new risk management material and information resources, CRID presents a new website on Information Resources for Emergency Preparedness and Response (http://preparativosyrespuesta.cridlac.org). This tool is one of the latest efforts of cooperation between the Regional Center for Disaster Information for Latin America and the Caribbean (CRID), the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO).
The site compiles over 300 documents, such as:
- Manuals, handbooks, guidelines and guidance on formats for quick reference.
- Reports, studies, articles and lessons learned.
- Brochures, posters and promotional material.
- Forms for the collection and process of information in emergency situations that can be easily downloaded and are ready to be edited.
The website (available in Spanish) also provides access to social networks and the opportunity to create personalized collections of documents within the portal through the “Mis favoritos” section.
