Expert Group Meeting on Strategies towards Building Resilience to Disasters in Asia and the Pacific
The Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on Strategies towards Building Resilience to Disasters in Asia and the Pacific (26-28 November 2013) was held as a side event to the 3rd session of the Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction (27-29 November 2013) at United Nations Conference Centre.
The objective of the meeting is to share knowledge and experiences on disaster risk management and climate change adaptation among experts in disaster risk reduction and decision makers responsible for policy planning and budgeting. Four core sessions will look at disaster risk reduction within specific sectors, integrating climate change adaptation into disaster risk reduction, opportunities for incorporating these in more general development planning and budgeting, and mainstreaming all of these issues to build resilience into development planning.
Key outcomes and recommendations from the meeting will be presented to the Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction during the high level panel discussions for further consideration by delegates.
