Expert Group Meeting on Regional Strategies towards Building Resilience to Disasters in Asia and the Pacific
The Expert Group Meeting on Regional Strategies towards Building Resilience will be organized by the Information and Communications Technology and Disaster Risk Reduction Division of ESCAP from 26 to 28 October 2014 at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok, Thailand. The Expert Group Meeting aims to provide a platform for member States’ sharing of knowledge and good practices of disaster risk reduction and building resilience to disasters through regional cooperation. Experts will deliberate on regional cooperation mechanisms in disaster risk reduction in the post 2015 development context, explore critical gaps and unmet needs of end-to-end early warning systems in the context of disasters with transboundary origins, and consider post disaster needs assessment and resilient recovery practices in the region. The key conclusions and recommendations will be presented to panels organized during the fourth session of the Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction of ESCAP.
