The RCC aims to provide a consultative mechanism for guiding the implementation of disaster risk reduction (DRR) and resilience efforts, promoting transboundary cooperation and designing regional programs. The RCC website hosts information on the risk profile and national disaster management systems of each RCC member country. The website further provides insight to outcomes of past RCC meeting discussions.About RCC
The Regional Consultative Committee on Disaster Management
The RCC serves as a non-binding regional mechanism to promote peer advocacy and exchange of expertise in disaster and climate risk management. Established in 2000, the RCC is comprised of National Disaster Management Offices (NDMOs) of 26 member countries.
The Regional Consultative Committee on Disaster Management (RCC), established by the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) in 2000, serves as a non-binding mechanism for the development of actionable strategies for disaster risk reduction and to promote cooperative programs at regional and sub-regional levels.
This platform provides an opportunity for member countries and observers to exchange lessons and to share their best practices across various disaster risk management (DRM) disciplines. The RCC also ensures that there is a periodic platform for member countries to share information on national, sub-national and regional priorities and needs with the intention to systematically encourage and facilitate regional cooperation in DRM.Read More
The RCC was established by Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), an international organization that works to build the resilience of people and institutions to disaster and climate change impacts in Asia and the Pacific. ADPC, as Secretariat to the RCC, supports in bringing together member countries and organizations working across various sectors, audiences and disciplines to address different aspects of disaster risk.
Each meeting adopts an action agenda and specifically requests ADPC in its capacities to develop national programs and provide technical support to countries in pursuing their national disaster risk reduction (DRR) strategies.
The RCC member countries also provide key inputs and guidance, through identifying disaster-related needs and priorities of the countries, which shapes ADPC’s governance strategy.Read More
