Services: DRRM; Communications

Location: APEC economies

Year: 2021 – 2022

Client: Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation

This project supports the mandate of APEC Emergency Preparedness Working Group (EPWG), particularly in strengthening APEC member economies’ capacities in mitigating, preparing, responding, and recovering from extreme weather events and disaster risks. A multi-stakeholder webinar was organized, which later included multiple consultation sessions with subject matter experts that produced a policy brief and knowledge note – all calling for a more strategic, holistic, inclusive, and reconceptualised emergency preparedness system, one that strives to be driven by scientific and evidence-based resilience ecosystem.
