Publication Overview/Description

This publication provides the detailed description of the proceedings of the 13th Regional Consultative Committee (RCC) on Disaster Management that took place in Islamabad, Pakistan from 17-19 October 2016. The value addition of the RCC lies in its capacity to support the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), and the delegates of the 13th RCC meeting affirmed the endorsements of its mechanisms.

Established in 2000 as one of the first regional dialogue platforms to promote consultation and cooperation on reducing disaster risk, the Regional Consultative Committee (RCC) on Disaster Management promotes peer advocacy and the exchange of experiences in reduction (DRR). Its Secretariat, the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), initiated the committee to bring countries in the Asia-Pacific region together to achieve common goals in DRR, explore ways to transform policies into practice and promote regional cooperation. More specifically, the RCC’s role is to provide a consultative mechanism for guiding implementation of DRR in the Asia-Pacific region; promoting co-operative DRR programs on a regional and sub-regional basis; and guiding the work of ADPC and its future directions.
