#1 Do you think that your community is prepared to face a disaster or another crisis?
Right now, our community is not prepared to face a disaster. Although in the past years, some processes to analyze the vulnerabilities and capacities of the communities have been implemented, the percentage of population that has been reached is very low.
#2 What can you do to make your community better prepared?
I think that it is important to encourage our peers and our public institutions in order to engage them even more in initiatives based on experiences of capacity building in communities and to conduct awareness campaigns on environmental care.
