The second annual Disaster Preparedness Forum hosted by CSR Asia and sponsored by the Prudence Foundation builds on the success of the first Disaster Preparedness Forum (DPF) held in Jakarta in November 2013. The Forum brings together key leaders in business, humanitarian, NGO and government sectors across the Asia-Pacific region. The aim of this year’s event is to explore and discuss opportunities for cooperation on disaster recovery with a focus on building capacities well before a disaster occurs.
Rapidly increasing damages and losses from recurrent natural disasters in the Asia-Pacific region require greater collaboration for sustainable recovery. With many of the region’s countries exposed to typhoons, floods, earthquakes and volcano eruptions there is a need to integrate disaster risk reduction into recovery and reconstruction efforts and build capacity for enhanced responses to future disasters. The business sector has much to contribute in helping improve the speed and effectiveness of disaster recovery and building more resilient communities, small businesses and local economies. At the same time the forum will also shed light on business opportunities offered through such engagements.
Who Should Attend?
Representatives from the business, government and humanitarian sector from Asia-Pacific with an interest in collaborative approaches to disaster preparedness, response and recovery.
The first annual Disaster Preparedness Forum, held in Jakarta in November 2013, brought together more than 100 leaders, for more information please visit Disaster Preparedness Forum 2013.
