Project Summary

The key to ensure sustainable economic growth is to minimize possible interruptions on economic activities. In the last 15 years, APEC member economies have been facing tremendous challenges to business operations due to natural hazards.

In light of this, Chinese Taipei proposes to establish the EPCC with a view to bringing in regional synergies and resources to meet the needs of ensuring sustainable economic development. (Enhancing regional digital preparedness on natural hazards to safeguard communities and business in the Asia-Pacific, 2015/SOM1/006; Established APEC Emergency Preparedness Capacity Building Center, EPCC, 2015/SOM2/006)。Following the establishment of “APEC Emergency Preparedness Capacity Building Center (EPCC)”, the ToR was endorsed intersessionally by the EPWG on 15 March 2016. The EPCC office opened in January 2017 for operation. EPCC will focus primarily on cross-cutting and cross fora capacity building efforts through scientific research on emergency preparedness issue. EPCC submit its working plan to the EPWG in SOM1 2017. (2016/SOM3/EPWG/014)  According to the 2017 EPCC workplan endorsed by the 11th EPWG meeting, Chinese Taipei invites Japan and invests joint efforts on improving regional resilience against natural hazards to deliver the first self-funded activity.

This proposed initiative meets the objectives of the APEC Strategy for Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Preparedness and Response in the Asia-Pacific Region, the APEC Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) Framework, Enhancing Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture in Response to Climate Change from 10th Senior Disaster Management Officials Forum in Iquitos “Emergency Preparedness for Supply Chain and Emergency Food Security”.  EPCC will provide capacity building planning and consultation and tailor-made, knowledge-based information for APEC economies in a timely manner to mitigate the impact of disasters. In order to fulfil EPWG’s mandate and continue to promote better emergency preparedness in the region, the EPCC will undertake the missions: Raise Risk Awareness, Empower Grass-root Capacity on Disaster Risk Reduction and Enhance Resilience.

As planned, EPCC will host annual capacity building events.  In 2017, the first activities : Host the APEC Summit/Expert/High Level Policy Dialogue/Meetings among critical stakeholders including governments, industries, leading research institutes and experts with back to back  APEC EPCC’s 1st Training Workshop on BCP.

The Expected outcomes will focus efforts on supporting of APEC properties to make contributions to upholding APEC’s main pillars of human security. Meanwhile, EPCC will bring in innovative landscape of disaster risk reduction and emergency preparedness for the coming year. It will directly benefit both public and private sector of APEC economies and non-governmental organizations.  The 2017 EPCC expected outcomes will be published for reference as the 2017 annual deliverables.
