Asia-Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction

The Australia Government  partnered with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) to host the Asia-Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (APMCDRR) at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from 19-22 September 2022. 

Convened by UNDRR, the APMCDRR  was the main regional platform in the Asia-Pacific for promoting coordination and cooperation on DRR and the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. The Conference brought together UN Member States, intergovernmental organisations, international and national organisations and stakeholder groups, to accelerate progress on disaster risk reduction.

As the first regional platform since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the APMCDRR was organized under the theme - From Crisis to Resilience: Transforming the Asia-Pacific Region’s future through disaster risk reduction.
