Coordination Centre for the Prevention of Natural Disasters in Central America (CEPREDENAC)

The Coordination Centre for the Prevention of Natural Disasters in Central America (CEPREDENAC) is the specialized institution of the Central American Integration System working towards strengthening regional capacity for disaster prevention, mitigation and response.

The strategic objectives of the PRRD are to promote the incorporation of disaster risk reduction in legislation policies and to develop local resilience to disaster risk, as well as to promote the incorporation of disaster risk analysis in the design and implementation of prevention, mitigation, response, recovery and reconstruction actions in the countries of the region (PRRD 2006-2015).

Through the coordination centre, a Regional Disaster Reduction Plan (PRRD) has been developed, aiming at contributing to disaster reduction as an integral part of the sustainability of Central American societies.
