The Program for Enhancement of Emergency Response (PEER) is a regional program initiated
in 1998 by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of U.S.
Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA). PEER aims to enhance local and regional disaster preparedness
and build the response capacities of vulnerable countries within the Asia region. To achieve this
goal, PEER is working on the institutionalization of sustainable disaster preparedness training
programs and emergency response systems. PEER has completed two stages and the third
stage of the program in Asia is underway.
