"This proposal is aimed at strengthening the capacities of bi-national DRR National Prevention, Mitigation and Response bodies in Cuba and Dominican Republic to permanently learn and collaborate, and to engage in advocacy work towards DRR regional bodies. A series of gaps were identified in the needs assessment, including the lack of institutionalization of key risk management tools and processes, information management during all the phases of the disaster, and coordination between the local, national, bi-national and regional levels. With this in mind, an intervention has been designed that is geared at consolidating local risk management capacities in the municipalities of Baracoa and San Antonio del Sur in Cuba, the institutionalization of tools in the National Prevention, Mitigation and Response Systems in the Dominican Republic and Cuba as well as the establishment of coordination mechanisms between both countries, the development of strategic alliances with CDEMA and CEPREDENAC and advocacy in regional consensus-building spaces. The proposed work will be closely coordinated with other risk management and development initiatives and will strive to develop sustainable risk management agendas in both countries. Direct beneficiaries: 11607 individuals and 82 organizations "
