Disasters and Displacement in a Changing Climate: The Role of Asia Pacific National Societies

Disasters and Displacement in a Changing Climate: The Role of Asia Pacific National Societies

This report is designed to enhance the collective understanding of Asia Pacific National Societies and the IFRC on the trends, dynamics and humanitarian needs of people on the move in the context of disasters and climate change. The report focuses on the role of Asia Pacific National Societies in the context of displacement, but also addresses the related human mobility trends of migration and planned relocation.

Beyond enhancing knowledge and understanding, the report is also designed to provide guidance for National Societies to individually and collectively enhance their humanitarian action in the context of disasters, displacement and climate change. The report builds upon the latest understanding and expertise on human mobility linked to disasters and climate change. The report also builds on relevant International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement policies, guidance and commitments related to climate change, disaster risk management, disaster law, resilience, protection, gender and inclusion (PGI), migration and displacement. The report contains examples of existing initiatives by Asia Pacific National Societies, demonstrating the diversity and strength of Red Cross Red Crescent action to address this emerging and critical challenge. The examples capture practices from all parts of the Asia Pacific region – from East Asia, from South Asia, from South East Asia, and from the Pacific.

The report is intended to be beneficial across Red Cross and Red Crescent National Society departments, from leadership to disaster management, climate change, health, shelter, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), restoring family links (RFL), welfare, migration and beyond. The report is also intended to be useful for representatives from government, regional and global institutions, academia, civil society organizations and United Nations agencies to deepen their understanding of the core mandate and strengths of Asia Pacific National Societies in addressing displacement in the context of disasters and climate change.

Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction 2018 | 3-6 July 2018 | Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

The Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) is the regional platform for dialogue and action on DRR, under the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR)1. Since its inception in 2005, the biennial Conference has met in: Beijing 2005, New Delhi 2007, Kuala Lumpur 2008, Incheon 2010, Yogyakarta 2012, Bangkok 2014 and New Delhi 2016. Each of the seven 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.
