Grant to develop disaster system

THE Asian Development Bank yesterday said it is providing the bank's first grant for enhancing disaster management in China, to help cope with the aftermath of the earthquake which killed more than 80,000 people in southwestern Sichuan Province last May.

The funds, totaling US$650,000, will be used to conduct a full review of the current system and help China develop a risk management strategy that is coordinated, effective, and more inclusive of the civil society and the private sector, ADB said in a statement.
