ICT’s application can help reduce loss in disaster

BSS

RAJSHAHI: Speakers at a post-rally discussion here yesterday said proper and effective uses of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can help reduce loss of lives and property caused by the natural disasters, reports BSS. They viewed there is no scope of preventing occurrence of natural catastrophe but there is scope of reducing damage and other casualties through the best uses of modern technologies and communications.

Besides, the persons with disabilities and other challenged people should be given priority in the activities and process of disaster reduction as they become more victimised in any disaster. District administration organised the discussion at Rajshahi Government Laboratory High School Auditorium to mark the National Disaster Preparedness Day-2018 in association with various development organisations.

Deputy Commissioner SM Abdul Kader addressed the discussion as the chief guest with Additional Deputy Commissioner (General) Md Salahuddin in the chair.

In his welcome speech, Aminul Islam, District Relief and Rehabilitation Officer, highlighted the significance of the day and good collaboration and coordination towards mitigation of loss of life and asset of any disaster. He also put forward a set of recommendations on how to substantially reduce risks and losses caused by the disasters.

The speakers stressed the need for a comprehensive approach for reducing the prevailing risks of the natural disaster and said importance should be given on local resource mobilisation through creating mass awareness to attain the cherished goal. They put emphasis on integration of disaster risk reduction into sustainable development policies and planning side by side with development and strengthening of institutions and mechanism.
