The ISDR’s 2003 campaign, Turning the Tide on Disasters, aims at changing perceptions of hydrometeorological disasters such as floods and drought by involving as many sectors as possible in education and prevention activities. The International Natural Disaster Reduction Day, 8 October 2003, will represent an opportunity for local and national organizations to draw attention to how to reduce vulnerability to water-related hazards and raise awareness. The Campaign will extend beyond 2003 until World Water Day on 22 March 2004. Find out more about the campaign on http://www.unisdr.org.
