Result 4: Provide community based evidence of best practice to the ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response Group (APG) for ASEAN policies.

At the 17th Meeting of the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management (ACDM), it expressed the view that civil society participation and coordination in AADMER implementation is necessary and welcome, as CSOs are strategic partners that can help further promote and implement AADMER at the national and local levels. In light of this statement, the AADMER Partnership Group (APG), which has been working with the ASEAN since 2009 to ensure the people-centred implementation of AADMER, proposed a process to develop an ACDM-CSO partnership framework, and the proposal was approved by the ACDM.
