"Regional cooperation for multi-hazard early warning systems - APDRN"
Countries in the region, at the recent ESCAP inter-governmental committee meeting, agreed to establish the Asia-Pacific Disaster Resilience Network (APDRN) to strengthen coherence for disaster risk reduction and resilience. One of the key pillars of this network is to put in place a regional platform for multi-hazard early warning system. Learning from the experiences of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee and the WMO/ESCAP Panel on Tropical Cyclones, the session will discuss the modality of putting in place regional multi-hazard early warning systems as a part of Asia-Pacific Disaster Resilience Network.
