Disaster preparedness and disAbled people.

Some thing I used to write about on the internet was disasters and disabled people. Here a piece of information about a world forum on this.

A three-week e-discussion on “Disasters and Disabled People” hosted by the World Bank begins next week. Each of the three weeks has a different focus topic:

Week 1, May 22 – 28: “Disaster Preparedness & Mitigation”

Week 2, May 29 – June 6: “Emergency Response/Relief”

Week 3, June 5 – 9: “Short/Medium Term Social-Economic Recovery & Reconstruction (with mitigation)”

All those who are interested are invited to join the discussion. For more information on the discussion and how you can join, please visit
