Latin America and the Caribbean – Disaster Risk Reduction Fact Sheet #1, Fiscal Year (FY) 2013

OVERVIEW

· Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) experience a range of natural hazards, including earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, tsunamis, landslides, volcanoes, forest fires, and droughts.

Environmental degradation and poor land-use management also increase populations’ vulnerability to natural hazards.
