Online platform to help marginalized communities during disaster recovery phases

Through its Laboratorio Comunitario online platform, Espacios Abiertos builds marginalized communities’ capacity to respond to disasters, provide critical information to the media, and insert themselves in the recovery process. 

To date, 27 communities have participated in two 8-session workshops facilitated by Espacios Abiertos and based on eight modules available free of charge on the platform. The modules address topics such as taking stock of communities’ experiences, resources, and allies; communications between communities and news media; fiscal issues; recovery funds; emergency preparedness; and the dissemination of communities’ complaints and controversies.
