Case study 8 – Awareness-raising and education campaigns to strengthen resilience in four municipalities of the department of Madriz and the Northern Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region in Nicaragua

In Nicaragua, Partners for Resilience (PfR) worked to reduce the risk of disaster in four municipalities of the department of Madriz that are in what is known as the Central American “Dry Corridor.” It also promoted the development and implementation of a regional climate change strategy in the Northern Caribbean Coast Autonomous Region. As the program aimed to reduce the risk of disasters through climate change adaptation and the management and restoration of local ecosystems, it created an awareness-raising and education campaign aimed at a broad sector of the public in the areas of intervention.
