Working in partnership in the Americas: Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (VCA) at community level in Central America

In 2004, two members of the ProVention Consortium, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (International Federation) and the Organization of American States (OAS) began implementing the first phase of VCA at community level in Central America financed by ProVention. The objective of the project was to develop and implement a VCA methodology at community level in four Central American countries: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Costa Rica. The first phase of the project focused on the preparation of community handbooks on disaster risk reduction. This brochure provides a description of the project and its results, lessons learned and further steps. Published in 2007.
