Harmonizing learning in Central America
The Regional Disaster Preparedness Reference Centre in El Salvador was created in 2005 to improve the capacity, quality and effectiveness of National Societies’ disaster response in the Central America region. The centre is responsible for coordinating the training of members of national disaster response or intervention teams in the region. To this end, it has developed a standardized training curriculum and relevant support materials, with the aid of disaster relief and preparedness experts from Central American National Societies.
