KUWAIT, June 10 (KUNA) -- Chairman of the Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) Dr. Hilal Al-Sayer on Wednesday stressed the momentousness of being ready for disaster management, especially legal readiness, so as to reduce impact of natural hazards.
Addressing the opening of the Middle East and North Africa consultative meeting on law and disasters, Al-Sayer emphasized the need to review, and adopt, the crisis management law and policy.
The event is organized by KRCS in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
For Al-Sayer, a crisis management policy must have definite standards.
Meanwhile, he referred the cooperation between the KRCS and the IFRC for promoting joint expertise in the field of law, saying both have the capacity to provide support in areas of research and the adoption of a legal framework for crisis management.
Back in 2012, the KRCS held the first workshop on Crisis Law, with the major aim of enhancing national legal readiness. It was attended by representatives of the concerned ministries and agencies, and others interested in the regulatory framework of the efforts of the international relief in crises. The International Federation has provided technical support required, he said.
The regional consultative meeting on disaster management was held here today, it is prelude for IFRC's 32nd International Conference to be held in Geneva next December. (end) ako.hb.ss
