Specialists taking part in the X Forum On Risk encourage the government to invest in prevention as disasters are increasing and have a strong impact on public finances.

Strongly advocating for prevention as a solution to the problems facing the country with natural disasters, the CNE held the X Foro Nacional sobre Riesgo (X Forum on Risk) with emphasis on analyzing the increasingly recurring impact of disasters on public finances and, therefore, the importance of investing in the issues of reduction, preparation and recovery in order to contribute to the development of the country and the well-being of the Costa Rican population.
