Atlas - Amenazas, vulnerabilidades y riesgos de Bolivia

R.B. Quiroga, J.C. Espinoza Morales, L.A. Salamanca, G.C. Torrico, 2008

A unique atlas presenting threats, vulnerabilities and risks in Bolivia has just been published (in Spanish). The atlas is considered a highly relevant instrument for improving the management and mitigation of the ever-present natural risks in Bolivia.

According to Hernan Tuco, Vice-Minister of Civil Defence of the Bolivian Government, the atlas will serve as a “reference to the national, departmental and municipal authorities for taking decisions regarding containment and prevention of major disasters”.

Within the framework of the NCCR North-South, the atlas is a direct result of the Transversal Package Project (TPP) on ‘Social Vulnerability and Resilience’ and a related PAMS (Partnership Actions) project. The atlas was developed as a joint-venture between the Vice-ministry of Civil Defence and researchers of the NCCR North-South, OXFAM and the Foundation for Participatory Communitarian Development (Fundepco). The team of authors were lead by Luis Salamanca of the NCCR North-South.

For more details see ‘Agencia Boliviana de Informacion’ and ‘La Razon’.

To order the atlas, please contact Manuel De La Fuente in Bolivia or Stephan Rist in Switzerland.
