9789291391264: World Disasters Report 2007: Focus on Discrimination (World Disasters Reports)

Gender, race, religion, age—there are so many reasons why people are excluded from society. Those who are face an uphill struggle for equality, even if they have the strength and wherewithal to take the first steps. However many do not. What, then, is the reality for these groups when disaster strikes?

Hidden, ignored or simply invisible, the most vulnerable—and those potentially in the greatest need—are rarely, if ever, at the forefront of aid operations. This report turns the spotlight on these groups, examining how and why they face discrimination. It calls on communities, governments and agencies to work harder to identify the most vulnerable and work together to ensure that their specific needs are addressed in an emergency.

Published annually since 1993 by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the World Disasters Reports bring together the latest trends, facts and analysis of contemporary crises—whether "natural" or human-made, quick-onset or chronic.

About the Author:

Yvonne Klynman is Senior Officer, Disaster Policy at the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC).

Review:

"Hurricane Katrina is now symbolic of what happens even in the most 'developed' of countries, when disaster hits communities already disadvantaged by deeply rooted forms of discrimination. This vital report demands awareness of the reality of discrimination in the delivery of essential humanitarian assistance."
