Vulnerability to natural disasters and market uncertainty in Mexico is significantly contributing to the enlargement of poverty and inequity. The current hazards management implementation is insufficient to cope with their negative outcomes, and the unfavorable productive and entitlement structures contribute to their amplification in particular geographic regions and economic sectors. Despite its novel design, the lack of penetration of disaster prevention instruments is endemic among the poor, and persists in rural areas. Although natural disasters and current trade conditions affect mainly the agricultural sector in this country, their negative impacts spill over to other regions and sectors. It justifies a more active public intervention that in turn reduces inequity.
