Over the past few months, the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), with its well-established experience in dealing with natural disasters, has helped strengthen the capacity of CENEPRED officers, and of national and regional government officials to plan, prepare and respond to such events. 

This month, a team from the ECLAC Caribbean office travelled to the San Martin and Piura regions to provide training, aimed at strengthening the capacity of CENEPRED and regional government officials to assess damages and losses caused by disasters. 

Over 70 officers from the various regional governments participated in the sessions, which took place in Moyobamba City, San Martin from 14-16 October, with a combined session held for the representatives of Piura and Lambayeque regions from 19-21 October.
