18-19 December 2012 (Bangkok, Thailand)
On 18-19 December 2012, ADRC organized Regional Workshop 2012 on ASEAN Capacity Building of Local Government Officials on Disaster Management project in Bangkok, Thailand. The workshop aims to share experiences through the project in which ADRC and NDMOs of each ASEAN country jointly have conducted since 2008. Thirteen participants from ASEAN states, ASEAN Secretariat and ADRC briefed the activities and discussed the way forward. As many local officials who had attended the training gave favorable comments on this training, it is expected to maintain sustainability of capacity building programs targeting local officials to meet various needs and situations of countries and areas. ADRC would like to extend sincere appreciation to all ASEAN NDMOs, local governments and relevant organizations that have cooperated in the project.
