MIA Validates Disaster Document For Liberia
By Ballah M. Kollie

GBARNGA, Jan 18 (LINA) - A Cross-country Data Baseline Disaster Management Document has been validated in Gbarnga, Bong County.

The document drafted between July and August 2013, covers the weather condition of a county, soil type, floods, location as well as distance and road condition and network, among other factors, that contribute to disaster in a county.

The Technical Assistant of the National Disaster Relief Commission (NDRC), Fairnoh T. Gbilah, told the Liberia News Agency at the weekend that the “document will serve as a national document and reference point for the country’s development partners”.

He said the document covers the entire country, noting that over the years Liberia has not had any document upon which disaster prevention and response are based.

“We have come back to the people from whom this document originated to see what is in it so that when we compile the final copy, we will all be aware of what is in it,” Gbilah told LINA.

He said the document being validated was gathered by three teams from the NDRC assigned to the central, western and southeastern regions, each of which worked along with 20 persons to gather the data that was verified for national use.

Those participating in the workshop included County Inspectors, Red Cross Field Supervisors and County Superintendents.
