The Asian and Pacific Centre for the Development of Disaster Information Management (APDIM) organized a virtual discussion on Disaster Risk Information Management in Asia and the Pacific: Developing Capacities and Enhancing Collaboration on 25 January 2020.
At this webinar, APDIM shared the outcome of the Preliminary Assessment of the Gaps and Needs for Disaster Risk Information and Data Management Platforms in Asia and the Pacific Region; the Guidelines on Monitoring and Reporting the Impacts of Sand and Dust Storms through the Sendai Framework Monitoring; and progress on the Sand and Dust Storms Risk Assessment in Asia and the Pacific.
Ms. Letizia Rossano, Director of APDIM said: “In the past year, APDIM worked to understand the landscape of supply and the demand for disaster risk information management and has built its multi-year programme of work based on these pieces of evidence and consultations.” She highlighted “APDIM has plans to work with countries directly who do ask for technical support to facilitate the sharing of data at the national level in a way that fits the particular country’s needs in disaster risk governance and disaster risk information management."
