The present study proposes the analysis of DRM strategies that had been implemented into sub-national development plans and public policy instruments in the States of Chiapas and Tabasco, located in Southeast Mexico. It describes the methodological phases for the implementation of those strategies and the participatory process, with a multi-level approach, carried out with multiple stakeholders and UNDP advisory. These strategies are aligned with the SDGs 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 11 and 13, and address the priorities 1 and 2 of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
This report aims to highlight the gaps that should be addressed when sub-national or local DRM strategies and development policies are analysed. It also looks to point out the main issues for projects where there are sub-national or local governments as partners. Specifically, the report evaluates challenges for institutionalization and sustainability of the DRM strategies, along different administrations, at local and sub-national levels. The report concludes that mainstreaming DRM at the sector and territorial levels requires a process of strengthening capacities and institutions, as well as empowering actors by giving them access to information and building bridges between the communities and governments.
