This Session is one of a series of events comprising the 2003 World Disaster Reduction Campaign. In accordance with the International Year of Freshwater, the Campaign organised by the UN/ISDR will review the numerous issues associated with water related disasters, culminating on the International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction, 8 October 2003. Its aim is to increase public awareness of, and participation in measures that can be taken to reduce the risk and vulnerabilities of communities to the negative impacts of natural hazards.
UN/ISDR invites you to contribute research, success stories, personal experiences and other information for possible inclusion in the 2003 World Disaster Reduction Campaign information kit.
