This study assesses the role of the investments made in disaster risk reduction (DRR) and prevention in the actual reduction of the impact of floods in the state of Tabasco between 2007 and 2010. Based on a previous study conducted within the framework of the Technical Assistance Agreement between the Mexican Government and the World Bank, it was found that the intense rainfall events occurring in Tabasco in 2007 and 2010 were similar in terms of their hydrometeorological characteristics (rainfall) and spatial distribution (rainfall fields).
Cultural heritage holds great importance for communities around the world. Heritage—both tangible and intangible—connects us to the past and provides invaluable insights into our identities and evolution. It can play an important role in economic growth, poverty reduction, and sustainable development.
