The Asian Preparedness Partnership (APP), established by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), is a unique multi-stakeholder regional partnership that includes countries from South and South-East Asia to better prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. Supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (the foundation) and United States Agency for International Development Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID BHA), the partnership strives to improve inter-organizational coordination and dialogue between governments, local humanitarian organization networks, and the private sector for enhancing capacities through partnerships, knowledge resources, training and networking opportunities.
Innovation has emerged as one of the key themes in disaster risk management (DRM) and broader humanitarian response. Nurturing 'Innovation' is a key pillar of the APP. With this consideration, it is organizing a webinar on 'Unlocking the Future Novel Approaches to DRM for a Safer Asia' on 🗓5 May 2021 at ⏰12:00 - 1:00 PM Bangkok time. Click Here to Register!
