This publication endeavours to complement and inform the on-going internal process of identifying and defining common strategies for urban interventions to operate and manage urban risk in the Americas. It also aims to better capture and reflect National Red Cross Society experiences and practices of urbanbased programming in Latin America and the Caribbean. Part one of the publication presents case studies from Colombia, Nicaragua and Jamaica, providing snapshots of how three National Red Cross Societies in Latin America and the Caribbean are intervening in volatile urban settings. The second part of the publication provides reflections on urban risk focusing on Panama and Peru in addition to operational experiences and learnings from Paraguay.
