ADB's Disaster and Emergency Assistance Policy was approved in May 2004. It indicated that rather than focusing on responding to disasters when they occur, that ADB, and other development partners, should work with vulnerable countries to identify, manage, and mitigate risks. The TA's goal and purpose is to present an overview of ongoing and planned regional DRR interventions within the broader context of the regional disaster risk profile. The collated information will not only contribute to improved regional planning and programming and highlight the areas for cooperation among regional sub regional organizations, it will also add to periodic progress reviews and reporting processes at the regional subregional levels. In addition, it will assist donor agencies and decision makers to channel resources and efforts that can meet their own policy and programming imperatives while implementing DRR.
