Under the principle of “leaving no one behind”, we apply the integrated system to respond to emergencies and promote the sustainability of development, in a continuous perspective, in line with the Humanitarian-Development Nexus, to have a lasting impact. For this reason, Component 3 of the Nic-ALERT Project will be implemented, from which the impacts of climate change will be addressed on the following groups: women, children and youth, indigenous and afro-descendant communities, older people and people with disabilities.

The action will focus on contributing to the reduction of the risk of disasters and impacts associated with climate change and other natural hazards in Nicaragua, through increasing community resilience to face climate-related impacts in some of the indigenous and Afro-descendant communities. most vulnerable on the coast. Specifically, it will be developed in nine communities on the Southern Caribbean Coast, in municipalities such as: Bluefields, la Desembocadura de Río Grande and Laguna de Perlas; and in eleven communities on the Northern Caribbean Coast in the municipalities of: Waspam, Puerto Cabezas, Prinzapolka, Rosita and Bonanza.

Collaborative and associative work at an inter-institutional and multisectoral level, as well as the out consultation processes at the family and community levels to define the intervención strategy, is essential for the success of the interventions. With these actions we contribute to the integration and participatory governance processes at the community level, facilitating transparency and accountability mechanisms that allow the active participation of people, as protagonists of the development processes.
