ACP Regional Experts on natural disaster risk management & climate

Experts from all the 6 ACP regions Cariforum, Pacific, Southern Africa, West Africa, Central Africa and Eastern Africa gathered on 24-25 April 2018 in Brussels to discuss natural risk management and climate change challenges in ACP countries. As the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States include some of the most disaster-prone and climate-vulnerable nations in the world, the meeting served as a solid framework to guide the ACP group’s follow up strategy for Disaster Risk Management for the next 5-year period 2018-2023. Therefore, ACP regional experts from several key institutions such as the African Development Bank, African Union Commission, Inter-Governmental Authority on Development, Economic Community of West African States, Economic Community of Central African States, Southern Africa Development Community, Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, University of the West Indies, Secretariat of the Pacific Community and University of South Pacific, shared their views and experiences during the meeting. As part of the ACP group ‘s strategy to include ACP climate change experts into the natural disaster risk management experts’ policy dialogue on resilience and adaptation, representatives from other regional institutions such as the Common Market of Eastern and Southern Africa, the Pacific Regional Environmental Program, Pacific Island Forum, East African Community and Indian Ocean Commission, were also invited to add their experiences to the discussions.
