The Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) is the regional platform for dialogue and action on disaster risk reduction, under the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR). Since its inception in 2005, each of the Asian Ministerial Conferences has adopted a political declaration and developed action plans that reaffirmed commitment to strengthen disaster resilience and renew regional approaches to implement first the Hyogo Framework for Action and now the SFDRR.
AMCDRR 2018 represents a key milestone to reflect on regional progress against the SFDRR three years since its adoption. Governments and key DRR stakeholder groups from across Asia, Central Asia and Iran are invited to participate. Participants from the Pacific are invited as observers.
This year, Mongolia will play host to the 8th Asian Ministerial Conference on DRR which will be held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia from 03 – 06 July 2018. More information and background to the Conference can be found here.
