This demonstration project supports the community vulnerable and displaced from La Cangrejera in Barranquilla with the mitigation, preparedness and prevention of recurrent flooding affecting 1200 families in this community. The project incorporates the mobilization of the community in the construction of barriers against the tide and trains brigades of emergency response to floods caused by temporal ends.

the project aims to adapt to coastal communities considered economically and socially vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change which increases the recurrence of floods in the costa Atlantica in Colombia.

community emergency response brigades will be trained to mitigate the impacts of floods in all the districts of the coast Atlantic of Barranquilla.
