Publication Overview/Description

In response to the tremendous losses suffered by SMEs during the 2011 floods, ADPC implemented the program called Private Sector Engagement in Thailand for Natural Disaster Risk Reduction: Resilient Economies through Business Continuity Planning and Management. Together with its national partners, the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation and OSMEP, ADPC supported SMEs to engage effectively with local government in risk reduction activities; created practical guidelines to train SMEs in developing BCPs; and facilitated the sharing of best practices in the countries of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation through an SME Community Forum.
