The Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) is pleased to announce the launch of a new project in Paraguay, Data for Disaster Risk Reduction (D4DRR), with the generous support of the Government of Taiwan. This project aims to strengthen efforts to collect, analyze, disseminate, and monitor data on meteorological, hydrological, and geophysical events. This information will be utilized by local agencies to activate early warning systems during emergencies. With these enhanced systems, we hope to contribute to the reduction of disaster risks and of loss of lives, livelihoods, health, infrastructure, and natural resources.
On July 15, 2022, PADF hosted an event with key partners in Asunción, Paraguay to officially kick off the project. Representatives from various national institutions delivered remarks in support of D4DRR:
PADF and Taiwan have been partners since 2012, reaching more than 350,000 people in 10 countries to date. The goal of our strategic partnership is to reduce risks and strengthen disaster resilience among communities across Latin America and the Caribbean.
