"This Guide for Local Public Managers presents a general framework for risk reduction, good practices and tools that have already been applied for this purpose in different cities. This publication intends to answer the following questions: WHY is the construction of disaster resilience a benefit?; WHAT kind of strategies and actions are required?; HOW to accomplish this task? Depending on the size, social, economic and cultural diversity between municipalities, districts and villages, each one will take on tasks in different ways. "
