Publication Overview/Description

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.
