In the wake of the 2017 earthquakes, Mexico faces unprecedented challenges to secure long-term recovery and work with communities to prepare for future natural disasters. Fundación Comunitaria Oaxaca, A.C. (FCO) partners with communities in Oaxaca impacted by the earthquake to award subgrants for community projects that improve food sovereignty and small-business productivity and to offer training and technical advice to mitigate the impact of future natural disasters. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Mexico. FCO’s activities further actions that make more resources available to communities seeking to address their own development needs. This grant is part of our broader initiative to encourage innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to unlock private, public and local resources for grassroots development. This project has been made possible in part by a grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
