ASEAN Visioning Workshop on AADMER

18-22 May 2009 (Bali, Indonesia)

In support to ASEAN's implementation of the Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER), ADRC participated in the visioning workshop to help identify areas for further cooperation and support. AADMER is a comprehensive document, signed by all ASEAN Member States in July 2005, capturing not only ASEAN's intention to respond jointly and more effectively but also to reduce disaster risks in the region. It provides the overall framework for regional cooperation on disaster management in ASEAN, which embodies the region's commitment to the implementation of the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA).

During the visioning workshop, ADRC introduced three potential projects in the context of implementing the AADMER. The first project is to conduct the feasibility study for the operationalization of the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre), which shall function as the operational arm of AADMER. The second project is to establish the ASEAN Disaster Management Communications Networking System (ADMCNS), which is aimed at strengthening the disaster management capacities of ASEAN Member States (AMSs) through the enhancement of communications network system that utilizes near real-time data from space satellites. The third project is to conduct a separate feasibility study for the ASEAN stockpiling, which will put up emergency stockpiles of disaster relief items.
