Seminar on disaster management

From: Belinda Sanderson <Belinda.Sanderson>
Date: Thursday, April 6, 2000
The Management of Disaster Management
Organised by the National Preservation Office in conjunction with
the M25 Consortium of Higher Education Libraries
Conference Centre, British Library
96 Euston Road
London NW1 2DB
May 23, 2000

The aim of this seminar is to look at different ways of approaching
disaster management, focusing on cooperative and cross-sectoral
management of resources. Increasingly, institutions are planning in
collaboration, whether regionally, nationally or internationally.
These programmes are supported by a wealth of shared information
which is frequently web based. This approach will be highlighted at
this seminar through the M25 consortium.
