ASEAN Disaster Risk Insurance Stakeholder Consultation and Workshop
April 25, 2017 - April 26, 2017
A 2-day consultation-cum-workshop organised by ASEAN, where more than 150 representatives from various government agencies in Thailand as well as insurance companies and the private sector involved in risk insurance, came together to share experiences and get to know up-to-date interventions and initiatives on disaster risk management and risk insurance in order to enhance the government’s capacity to cope with the financial burden after disasters strike. Organised in collaboration with the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation and Office of Insurance Commission of Thailand, the workshop jumpstarts ASEAN DRFI Programme’s initiative to implement country studies in Thailand and the Philippines that will establish policy frameworks responsive to disaster risk management.
