THE VOICE OF THE COMMUNITIES OF LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN: TOWARDS THE WORLD HUMANITARIAN SUMMIT (WHS)

Report of the Survey under the Consultation with the Affected Communities of Latin America and the Caribbean - February and March 2015

The consultation with communities affected by any kind of emergency or crisis was carried out in 634 communities across 13 countries of Latin America and the Caribbean region (Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Haiti and Dominican Republic). The majority of respondents who received assistance expressed their satisfaction with the humanitarian workers’ work. They suggested more involvement of the communities in risk reduction and disaster management, increased attention on education for children, young people, and adults, and access to the employment.
