Work on the second phase of Dubai Aid City (DAC) spread over an area of one million sqm was going on at a brisk pace, with levelling of land and engineering drawings for warehouses and office completed.



Barbara Costeck, Head of Dubai Aid City, said that DAC, which would serve as the base for disaster management for 80 per cent of such crises in the world, would have five departments in this phase including emergency response and preparedness with sufficient stocks of various goods required for quick intervention in man-made and natural disasters, according to a report in "Khaleej Times.”



"The focus of DAC is to facilitate all humanitarian and development operations in the Middle East, Central and South-East Asia and Africa." Stating that the second phase was expected to be completed by December, Costeck, who was participating in a forum on disaster and crisis management, said: "We are embarking on establishing a data base on all government departments and humanitarian organisations with whom we will need to coordinate to ensure fast and easy access to crisis areas." International organisations, including UNICEF, which had selected DAC as its regional headquarters, will join the training and humanitarian programmes conducted by the DAC, she said.
