The “ASEAN Disaster Law Mapping Consultation” seeks to confirm the accuracy of the research and findings endorsed by the ASEAN Committee on Disaster Management (ACDM) in collaboration with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) on the “ASEAN Peer to Peer Learning: Disaster Law and Policy Platform.” As part of the peer learning platform, it was proposed to map and analyze domestic disaster laws to create an evidence-base for assessing the institutionalization of ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER) provisions in domestic legal frameworks, specially focusing on disaster preparedness and response provisions. The outputs of the mapping will be a Final Report providing a comparative regional overview and some country-level example of AADMER preparedness and response institutionalization in domestic law and policy.
The consultation is a key step in the research process as it will ground the research on actual experiences by NDMOs, Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies and other non-government stakeholders in ensuring that AADMER provisions are supported by their domestic legal frameworks.
