CRID, within the framework of the DIPECHO South America’s Plan of Action, has launched a website—in Spanish—that puts together useful tools for disaster risk management (Sistematización de Herramientas de Gestión de Desastreshttp://herramientas.cridlac.org). It was created with the support from the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) and the European Commission through its Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Unit (DIPECHO).

This portal is directed to national and international actors working in disaster risk reduction, and the tools offered have gone through a validation process to help these actors in their work.

Twenty-seven tools have been included on the following subjects: self-assessment for local governments, disaster risk analysis, awareness campaigns, communications kits, funding for demonstration projects, conformation of civil defense community groups, guidelines for the preparation of community plans for risk management and emergency response, early warning systems, hospital safety, tsunami preparedness, and educational games.
