Launch of the AADMER Work Programme 2021-2025 and the 6th AADMER Partnership Conference
On 8 June 2021, the representatives from the APTERR Secretariat, Ms. Thortawan Thanormthin and Mr. Pirapat Shimphalee, participated in the Launch of the AADMER Work Programme 2021-2025 and the 6th AADMER Partnership Conference via a virtual conference. The meeting was organised by the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management (ACDM) and also attended by numerous distinguished delegates from ASEAN as well as the ACDM’s partners.
On this occasion, the meeting acknowledged with great appreciation the launch of the new ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER) Work Programme (AWP) 2021-2025, aiming to build a more disaster-resilient ASEAN community. Another main event of the meeting was the pledging from interested ACDM’s partners to support the implementation of AWP through its five priorities and outputs for strengthening the coordinated regional disaster management capacities.
The APTERR is one of implementing mechanisms playing a significant role in providing food preparedness and response to the emergency and for other humanitarian purposes via its effective rice assistance programmes of Tier 1, 2 and 3. With united effort from various key actors, a more adaptive, inclusive and resilient ASEAN region could be considerably achieved.
