Estudios Técnicos, Inc. & University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus - 2019-01-01


Children and adolescents have been identified as one of the most vulnerable populations to the onslaught of natural disasters. For that reason the Institute for Youth Development (Instituto del Desarrollo de la Juventud, IDJ) commissioned a study on the Impacts of Hurricane Maria on Children and Young People of Puerto Rico. This Study addresses ten (10) research questions with the goal to provide a broader access to information that would allow us to understand the implications of the hurricane in Puerto Rico’s children and their families, to develop measures to help provide the necessary conditions and opportunities for children to recover and can become active members of the recovery and reconstruction efforts of Puerto Rico.
