"Extreme Weather Moves on To Agenda"

"The first six months of 2011 have brought image after image of human misery and ecological upheaval.

Droughts, wildfires, twisters, floods, heat waves, extreme blizzards — just about every natural disaster you can imagine has hit just about every place on the planet.

How to handle them, how to survive them, how to clean up and rebuild after them are among the many issues that will be on the agenda for the 21st World Conference on Disaster Management (WCDM), to be held in Toronto Sunday, June 19, through Wednesday."
