5-6 Aug, 2013 Bangkok, Thailand
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) has hosted AMCDRR every 2 years to discuss DRR topics of Asian countries. Next AMCDRR, which is the 6th, will be held in Thailand on June of 2014. For the purpose of deciding the framework of the Conference, 1st Executive Committee (EC) of 6th AMCDRR was held on 5-6 August in Bangkok.
The EC was hosted by UNISDR and the Thai Government. The Indonesian Government which has hosted the 5th AMCDRR, the Japanese Government which will host the next World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in 2015 (WCDRR2015), the donor agencies such as USAID, AusAID and JICA, World Bank, Asian Development Bank and the Asian regional organizations such as ADPC, ADRRN and ADRC were the participants.
At EC, the framework of 6th AMCDRR was discussed. In order to consolidate the proposal as the Asian region for WCDRR2015, EC participants determined "Promoting investments for resilient nations and communities" as the main theme of the Conference and selected three sub-themes; 1) Enhance resilience at local levels, 2) Increase public investments for disaster and climate risk management to protect development gains and 3) Private sector role ? Public & private partnerships for disaster risk reduction.
Cooperating with the Japanese Government, ADRC would contribute to the advancement of these consideration.
