Emergency management For the legal concept, see Emergency Aid Doctrine Disaster management (or emergency management) is the term used to designate the efforts of communities or businesses to plan for and coordinate all personnel and materials required to either mitigate the effects of, or recover from, natural or man-made disasters, or acts of terrorism. Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats, although their study is an important part of the field. Events covered by disaster management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and communication failures. Emergency planning ideals If possible, emergency planning should aim to prevent emergencies from occurring, and failing that, should develop a good action plan to mitigate the results and effects of any emergencies.

World Day Against Child Labour - 12 June Hundreds of millions of girls and boys throughout the world are engaged in work that deprives them of adequate education, health, leisure and basic freedoms, violating their rights. Of these children, more than half are exposed to the worst forms of child labour such as work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities such as drug trafficking and prostitution, as well as involvement in armed conflict.

How pity does not remedy child labour – Andy Mulligan With the World Day Against Child Labour celebrated every June, here is Andy Mulligan with his take on how sparing ‘small change’ as contribution to larger issues does not help… In every school I’ve ever worked in, we’ve had to do something about Child Labour, and the thing I find hardest and most dishonest is dishing out the tear-jerking leaflets showing kids in carpet-factories, slaughter-houses, football-stitching workshops, road-gangs, sugar-cane fields and on and on – or those hysterical bulletins that accompanied the Commonwealth Games. Photographs of frail bodies, and well-meaning text reminding us that every child has the right to an education – which is undoubtedly true, but it’s rather like saying ‘war should be stopped’, or ‘pollution is a very bad thing’. All such sentiments produce is a lot of earnest head-nodding, followed by a fund-raising cake-sale or – in my school the other day – a ‘mufti-day for the poor’. There’s a bad taste in my mouth, just talking about it.
