Organizer:
Guyana - government
Date:
13 Oct 2012
Location:
Guyana (Georgetown)

The thrust for the activities will be the promotion of awareness to the general population and various stakeholders.

Disaster Risk Reduction Day 2011 focused on children and their role in disaster risk management, as it was outlined that during times of disaster they tend to suffer most from discomfiture.

This year the focus is on women and girls. A mini-exhibition will be organised with video and photos showing what are being done by women both overseas and locally in disaster risk management and disaster risk reduction .
