The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies' (IFRC) World Disasters Report 2012, edited by the RSC's Professor Roger Zetter, was launched on 16 October.
This year’s 20th edition focuses on 'forced migration and displacement'. It discusses the contemporary causes and consequences of forced migration associated with different displacement situations (conflicts, natural and technological hazards, development) and their impact on the health, dignity and rights of migrants.
In this presentation, Professor Zetter discussed the aims, aspirations and challenges in editing the report, and highlighted the main contents, recommendations, and proposals.
