Emergency preparedness and response: from lessons to action : report of the regional consultation, Indonesia, 27-29 June 2006
AbstractThe Regional Consultation focused on how to act on and incorporate the lessons learnt from the tsunami into disaster management policies and plans of every nation, so that they could be implemented to strengthen emergency preparedness and response at every level in every country in the Region. Member countries of the South-East Asia Region had developed 12 benchmarks for emergency preparedness and response in a meeting in Bangkok in November 2005. At the Bali consultation, participants analysed the progress of benchmarks in relation to community empowerment, multisectoral coordination, capacity building and standards and guidelines.
