perhaps this is an opportunity to send suggestions regarding 'disaster information' and data access mechanisms as an 'investment priority' for national disaster risk management.
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) is in the process of drafting a new disaster risk management policy. This policy is intended to improve the IDBâs ability to help borrowing member countries attain their development goals in sustainable economic growth, poverty reduction, and promotion of social equity by supporting their efforts to proactively manage disaster risk. Once approved, the policy document will replace the current Natural and Unexpected Disasters Policy (OP-704), which was approved in 1999. The purpose of the consultation process is to receive comments from government entities, civil society organizations, and the private sector on the contents of the proposed policy.
The draft of the policy along with supporting documents is available at http://www.iadb.org/sds/ENV/site_2970_e.htm. Comments will be accepted until March 21, 2006, and should be submitted by e-mail to Niels Holm-Nielsen at nielshn at iadb.org.
