Disaster Preparedness Forum:
Creating value through strategic partnerships
This is the third annual Disaster Preparedness Forum hosted by CSR Asia and Prudence Foundation.
Bringing together key leaders in business, humanitarian, and government sectors across the Asia-Pacific region, the Forum aims to help advance and form strategic partnerships for community disaster preparedness. The significant social and economic cost of recent disasters in Nepal, Japan and the Philippines highlights the need to invest in disaster preparedness for more effective response and recovery. Coordinated efforts between the business, humanitarian and government sectors can significantly reduce post-disaster recovery spending, damages and losses.
Join us at the Disaster Preparedness Forum 2015 to learn about opportunities for businesses to address disaster related community needs through partnerships that leverage each sector’s unique competencies and create value for all involved.
This Forum will:
Build understanding of the humanitarian system and the role of business as an important partner in building disaster preparedness beyond business boundaries
Demonstrate how the private and humanitarian sector can develop more strategic partnerships resulting in mutual benefits for all stakeholders
Connect business, humanitarian and government leaders with the aim to support the creation of new partnerships
|Join the discussion at the Forum and your input will help inform a new publication on cross sector partnerships. A copy of this will be available first to all Forum attendees.
