Representatives of DRI recently spoke at the Crisis & Emergency Management Conference (CEMC) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The theme of the conference, held in January, was “Preparing to Face the Challenges of the Future: Innovative Solutions in Crisis & Emergency Management.”
The event sought to promote emergency and crisis management in the UAE particularly, and in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region. Also, the conference aimed to enable local and national organizations in the public and volunteer sectors to benefit from the experiences and expertise of other countries through sharing sessions on methods and systems with international experts.
Representing DRI were speaker Al Berman, President of the DRI International from the United States, who spoke about facilitating business continuity planning through enhanced public-private sector co-operation, and Carol Chia, Program Director of DRI Malaysia.
