Guatemalan Coordinating Agency for Disaster Reduction (CONRED)

Guatemala’s territory, due to its geographical, geological and tectonic conditions, is classified as one of the countries with a highest potential for multiple natural hazards. And due to its social and economic situation as well as its environmental degradation and development, its vulnerability conditions are high. Therefore, a large percentage of the population, infrastructures and services are exposed to various risks of disasters caused by natural hazards. Furthermore, some anthropogenic-natured threats are also present as consequence of human/nature activities that generate high-risk conditions. The National Coordinating Agency for Disaster Reduction is the entity that aims to prevent, mitigate, respond and participate in the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the damage caused by the presence of disasters.
