Project Summary

The Asia–Pacific region is exposed to an ever increasing number of disasters that pose risks to the regional economy and the wellbeing of our peoples. Emerging disasters that threaten food security, not only hinder trade but also create challenges of different scope that affect the most vulnerable populations, including losses in livelihoods, diseases and food scarcities. These phenomena require joint action of the Asia-Pacific Region to address issues of mitigation, preparedness, response to ensure the resiliency of the populations in the face of emergencies.

As the frequency and severity natural hazards and subsequent negative impact have continued to rise over the last three decades, so too has their economic cost. While it is difficult to estimate exactly, targeted preparedness actions can reduce response costs and save lives.

Experience demonstrates that good pre-agreements and collaboration between public and private sectors can improve the timing and quality of the response.  However, there are not necessarily mechanisms established for facilitating agreements and interventions.

Finally, disaster preparedness is a cross functional activity that requires coordination with multiple sectors, and multiple levels. For instance, discussing food security issues or emergency financial arrangements should not be undertaken in isolation of relevant actors.

The 10th Senior Disaster Management Officials Forum (SDMOF) will address these issues and will agree to promote joint actions to be presented as a follow-up to the Sendai Framework for DRR and agreement with APEC Disaster Risk Reduction Framework.

The meeting will be held on 8th and 9th October 2016 and will be attended by delegates from APEC economies, private sector, non-government organizations and others. This year SDMOF theme is “Emergency Preparedness for Supply Chain and Emergency Food Security.
