Since 2013 Prudence Foundation and CSR Asia have jointly organized and hosted the annual Disaster Preparedness Forum. This one-day event brings together thought leaders and practitioners from the government, business and civil society sectors with the objective to help create and advance collaborative approaches for disaster preparedness and resilience.
Each year, the Forum takes place in a different country, with a different theme. Previous DPF’s were held in Jakarta (2013), Manila (2014) and Hanoi (2015). For 2017, the Forum will be held in Bangkok. Renowned for its advocacy and knowledge building, the Forum creates a platform for generating powerful discussion and lasting partnerships.
