Presented by: Nabila Nasir-Myers, Acting RM In Emergencies Coordinator, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Asia Pacific region
The exposure and vulnerability of communities and socioeconomic assets to natural hazards is increasing exponentially in Southeast Asia. The recent Sunda Strait tsunami, the latest in a series of disasters to hit Indonesia in 2018, is a reminder of the powerful devastation caused by rapid onset disasters. IFRC coordinates the Red Cross Red Crescent’s overarching appeal and operations for Indonesia Earthquakes and Tsunamis supporting the Indonesian Red Cross in its efforts to respond to the immediate and mid- to longer-term recovery needs of the most vulnerable affected communities, and to help these communities be better prepared and more resilient against future disasters.
Investing in risk reduction and preparedness is paramount to mitigating future losses and tragedy. Join this webinar for an update on the latest situation and response efforts in Indonesia and to learn about opportunities to support local capacities for disaster preparedness across the Asia Pacific Region.
