Following eight Working Groups' meetings in April and early May, there are five more gatherings planned for the first half of May 2009. During the last month the following Working Groups have been busy: Landmine; HIV/AIDS Technical; Disaster Management; Water Supply & Sanitation (two meetings); INGO Discussion Group; Ethnic Minorities; and Climate Change. As for the coming weeks, HCMC Administrators will meet at 8:30 on May 8 (at Saigon Children's Charity, 59 Tran Quoc Thao, District 3, HCMC); HIV/AIDS Technical will have a lunch-time seminar at 12:00 on May 12 (location to be confirmed); Disaster Management will meet at 14:00 on May 12 (at the NGO Resource Centre); Climate Change Mitigation Sub-group will meet at 14:00 on May 14 (at the NGO Resource Centre); and Disaster Management will have another meeting on Health Cluster at 14:00 on May 15 (at WHO Office, 63 Tran Hung Dao, Hanoi).

Check our calendar section for more details. We apologize for the error made in our last newsletter - the Water Supply & Sanitation WG meeting was not held on April 25 as was stated in the newsletter, but on April 24. We will do our best not to repeat similar mistake in future!

Warm regards from the VUFO-NGO Resource Centre's team!
