CPD Expert Consultation on Floods : Need for Enhanced Concern, Better Coordination and Confidence Building Measures
AbstractThe Centre for Policy dialogue (CPD) convened an Expert Group Consultation at its Dialogue Room on Saturday 4 August 2007. The meeting was called to discuss the state of affairs in the context of the ongoing floods in the country and the possible consequences in terms of relief and rehabilitation activities. The meeting focused on food stock and food security, probable damage of aman crop and its rehabilitation, activisation of private sector for food import and distribution, involvement of non-government and community based organisations in relief and rehabilitation works. The meeting was of the opinion that there is an urgent need to enhance the governmentâ€™s concern about the unfolding floods, improve coordination among relevant government agencies and between the government and non-government actors, and instil an overall sense of confidence in the economy and society.
