International day for Disaster Reduction: Living with disability and disasters

Listen /

Margareta Wahlstrom

The 2013 International Day for Disaster Reduction recognizes the critical role of persons with disabilities in fostering disaster resilience.

Persons living with disabilities are among the most excluded in society, and their plight is magnified when a disaster strikes.

The theme of the 2013 International day for Disaster Reduction is "Living with Disability and Disasters."

In this interview, UN Radio's Donn Bobb asked the head of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) Margareta Wahlstrom why such a theme.
