Publication Overview/Description

The 14th Regional Consultative Committee on Disaster Management (RCC) held in Kathmandu, Nepal, brought together 17 member-countries to encourage and facilitate regional cooperation in disaster risk reduction (DRR) among National Disaster Management Offices (NDMOs) on the theme of "Policies and Practices for Coherence between Global Frameworks."

The RCC mechanism, established in 2000 by Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), promotes peer advocacy and exchange of expertise in reducing disaster risk and enhancing climate resilience (CL). The RCC continues to expand its role to assist countries in developing more comprehensive program approaches for wider application. Each meeting adopts an action agenda and specifically requests ADPC, as the RCC's Secretariat, to develop programs and provide technical support to countries in pursuing their DRR strategies.
