Latin America and the Caribbean
Latin America and the Caribbean is the world’s second most disaster-prone region. Recurrent climatic shocks and natural disasters add to transboundary animal disease outbreaks, conflict and political unrest, structural poverty and the economic consequences of COVID-19.

FAO’s work in the region mainly focuses on addressing the immediate needs of affected populations by restoring their production activities and agricultural livelihoods.
