  • Projecto Mitigação de riscos (2005-2006)

    The population of San Martín de Porres was in a vulnerable situation due to various limitations and deficiencies that required immediate solution. The main problems were the precarious and dangerous accesses to the area, causing accidents every day. The slope where is the settlement is unstable, which made the population very vulnerable in case of earthquake, rain or collapse. The actions undertaken in this project aimed at improving human settlement in a sensitive way, in order to protect themselves against disaster environment, ensuring new access to the area, with living conditions more worthy. In addition, initiatives sought to protect the families of possible rock falls, with works that could held up land in trouble of collapsing. The construction of barriers or embankments also sought to amortize the falling rocks, as well as the construction of control dams to prevent the effects of rain and possible landslides.
