Mariana Daza von Boeck is the program manager for the Resilient Territories program with Helvetas in Bolivia. She has more than 10 years’ experience in municipal environmental management. Her focus areas include integrated solid waste management, nature-based solutions, environmental control, urban ecology, climate change, and resilience.
Urban resilience measures need to respond to the interlinkages between the city and its surrounding periurban areas to effectively mitigate risk. Helvetas explains how the organization supports communities in Yangon, Myanmar, and Sucre, Bolivia, to do this.
