RAPID IDENTIFICATION OF MEASURES FOR ACTION (IRMA, for its acronym in Spanish)
Consist in studies to determine risk scenarios with an environmental focus. DGOTA has applied this IRMA tool in the basins of the coastal rivers Malanche, Lurín, Chillón and Rímac; and, in the Amazonian basin, with the Ponasa river.
The safety of people and their livelihoods is a priority, as well as avoiding damage to ecosystems due to disaster risks; so, IRMA studies are carried out prioritizing the hydrographic basins highly exposed to Floods and Mass Removal processes.
The Technical Documents for the Rapid Identification of Measures for Action allows:
– Preventive, mitigating and adaptive measures that incorporate the environmental approach to incorporate NI in disaster risk management
– Contribute to Regional and local authorities through a scientific technical tool for decision making.
– The proposed measures can be incorporated into the public investment process. Investments considering risk management in the event of natural disasters (anticipating other events, such as “El Niño”) that can be proposed and implemented within the framework of economic reactivation in the face of COVID19.
