World Disasters Report 2006
The focus of this year’s Report, in its 14th year of publication, is neglected crises
. The report looks at communities which languish in the shadows of disaster response – neglected by aid organizations, the media, donors, even their own governments. The World Disasters Report 2006
challenges the received wisdom that most of the world’s ‘forgotten/neglected’ crisis are conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa. Instead, it analyses the impacts of neglected natural, technological and health-related disasters. The report digs beneath the surface to identify the factors, issues and solutions which, when neglected, push people into disaster. Hard-hitting field reporting is combined with analysis of aid flows and donor preferences.
