Presentación del Estudio de Políticas de Protección Civil en México (in Spanish)
The OECD is conducting a country review of Mexico’s National Civil Protection System, with a focus on earthquakes, floods and hurricanes.
Depending on the severity of a particular event, these natural risks are managed at different geographical scales in Mexico and may involve the coordination of stakeholders from the Federal government, States and municipalities in addition to businesses, the scientific community and volunteer organisations.
For this reason, the OECD review will focus not only on the effectiveness of policies to prevent, mitigate and respond to such large scale risks, but also on governance aspects of the civil protection system that ensure timely information flow and clarity of roles and responsibilities.
The review’s final report is expected to be ready in November 2012.
