- Sharing of analysis and suggestions about food and nutrition security to create a local preparedness plan to cope with risks, and updating of the local development and advocacy plans.
The SIRV-SAN was inspired by Système d’Information sur les Ressources et les Vulnérabilités pour la gestion des crises et la gestion préventive du territoire de Tabarre (SIRV-TAB – www.sirv.tabarre.ht) created in 2013. It was a pilot project to shift from the urban to the rural approach in DRR.
