10:00:53 Soundbite by Kristalina Georgieva (in ENGLISH): We need to change our approach from the one that is mostly reacting to one that is primarily focus on preparedness and prevention, in another words we need to build the resilience. Recognizing it is a long term effort. It is not going to happen one night. It has to be embedded in national policies and it has to be not just a responsibility of a disaster management agency or ministry. It has to be the responsibility for everyone, from the top to the bottom and the bottom up. 00:00:38
