Regional Assessment Report on Disaster Risk in Latin America and the Caribbean
This first edition of the Regional Assessment Report on Disaster Risk in Latin
America and the Caribbean (RAR 2021) presents the results of thirty years of
efforts to reduce the risk of disasters in the region. The analysis contained in
these pages - particularly when considered in combination with the lessons
learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and the adverse economic panorama
ahead - presents us with a unique opportunity to both rethink and implement
concrete risk reduction strategies that better meet the challenges of today.
The conclusions contained in this report demonstrate the need for profound
shifts in how we understand both disaster risk and its drivers, and also how
we might better utilize governance to successfully reduce both. We hope this
first edition of the RAR 2021 will not only stimulate debate but also inspire
