BMC - NGO Disaster Mgt - next steps after Jan 12 mtg

My opinion is that for a subject as serious as Disaster Management, it is better to restrict meetings to those from whom it is very clear what they are bringing to the table, instead of open meetings in which anyone can attend.
 
The minutes of the meeting, etc., would be publicly displayed so that others can respond, or participate, etc.
 
So, over the next one week, we need to identify:
 
a) all NGOs, institutions, and organisations who can get involved with disaster awareness, preparation, mitigation, relief supplies and services, rehabilitation, etc.
 
Those at the meeting who seemed to fit in this category were UNDP, United Way Mumbai with Hope Foundation, Times Foundation, Indrani Malkani - JAAG - D ward, Aniruddha Academy of Disaster Management, CORO - M/E Ward, SNEHA - F ward, Apnalaya, Action Aid India, Vikas Sahyog Pratishthan, Karunya Trust - Powai, and Yuvak Pratisthan.
 
 
b) volunteers from these who are willing to form a core group to interact with the BMC.
 
Among those who have volunteered to do so at the last BMC - NGO meeting are UNDP; Shibani Sacheva of United Way Mumbai; Indrani Malkani.
 
Thereafter, we will have meetings among ourselves and with BMC to chalk out a plan of action.
 
Please respond immediately as you read this email, if you have an interest in either a) or b).
 
Thanks and Regards
Vinay
