Disaster Preparedness Advocacy

Defining a role for business in community preparedness

Partnership Approach

Strategic engagement by the private sector in disaster preparedness efforts has the potential to help address business objectives. However, meaningful and sustainable impact cannot be achieved unless there is close collaboration between business, NGO, humanitarian and government sectors.

In partnership with CSR Asia, we host an annual Disaster Preparedness Forum across the region, providing a platform for dialogue, learnings and advocacy to encourage greater private sector engagement. White Papers are then published based on key findings and learnings.

The third forum, “Creating Value Through Strategic Partnerships” was held in Hanoi in July 2015 and had over 100 delegates attend. This forum aimed to help advance and form strategic partnerships for disaster preparedness and recovery.
