UNICEF conducts training in Cayo


Further to the National Protocol launch by the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund UNICEF and the Children and Adolescent Consultation in 2020, a one-day event on Humanitarian Training on Integrated Protection for Children and Adolescents During Emergency and Disaster Situations in Belize was held on Thursday at the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Council Conference Room.
The goal of the training was to review the Protocol in the light of recent lessons learned during the response to Hurricanes Eta and Iota. Participants learned about concrete steps in preparedness, response, and recovery that looks at the protection of children during emergencies. Another aim was to bring together the different organizations that play a role in Disaster Preparation.
