Asia Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Reduction in Brisbane, Australia

 We participated in the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) to host the Asia-Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (APMCDRR) at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 19-22 September 2022.

This conference offered us an opportunity to showcase and share experiences, actions, and innovations aimed at building a resilient future for the region. We actively engaged in various consultations and represented strong civil society organization (CSO) involvement under the theme ‘From Crisis to Resilience: Transforming the Asia-Pacific Region’s Future through Disaster Risk Reduction’.

As the Asia-Pacific is the most disaster-prone region in the world, the conference provided a crucial platform to review efforts to prevent new and reduce existing risks, and for countries and organizations to make actionable commitments against the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.
