Virtual meeting
Bangkok, Thailand

By invitation only

With the completion of work to develop the Disaster-related Statistics Framework (DRSF), the endorsement of the Committee on Statistics in October 2018 and the Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction noting its work in 2019, the new task is to direct collaboration towards the implementation of the framework and capacity development in the Asia-Pacific region in the form of a Technical Working Group (TWG) on Disaster-related Statistics.

The TOR of the TWG was approved by the Bureau of Statistics in April 2019 and the Committee on Statistics in May 2020.

The TWG shall function as a community of practice, consisting of experts and professionals to support the capacity of member states to implement the DRSF that is aligned with national priorities, internationally comparable across countries and coherent with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Following on the decision made by the Committee on Statistics, the TWG held its first virtual meeting on October 28, 2020. The objectives of the meeting were (1) to select the Chair and Vice-Chairs of the TWG to provide leadership and direction to the group and (2) to adjust expectations, discuss drivers and determine immediate priorities for the work of the TWG. Participants of the meeting will be members of the TWG.
