Poster competition

During the conference a competition was held to nominate the best poster. The winning poster is from a project in Uganda and is described as follows: "This poster describes a joint partnership of five Netherlands organisations which aims to reduce the impact of natural hazards on vulnerable communities in Uganda. The project aims to enhance adaptation through resilience building, use of appropriate technologies, relationship building, asset buildings, sustaining incomes and managing and conserving natural resources. This is a joint project led by Cordaid (Email: sircor@cordaid.net)"
