Plenary Session 2: Sport as an answer to emergencies and crises

The year 2010 was marked by large-scale natural disasters in areas already affected by extreme poverty. The major mobilization of the international community for Haiti has demonstrated that sport can play a key role in the process of reconstruction. Experts involved in these operations will determine effective methods of intervention based on their experiences.
