Co-hosted with the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) and the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI), this two-day workshop brought together government officials from disaster risk management agencies, insurance supervisors and ministries of finance as well as international organisations, academia and the private sector to share experience and expertise on the development of strategies for managing the financial impacts of disaster risks.
The OECD's contribution to this event was supported by the Japanese government.
The agenda focused on three issues critical for the development of a strategy for managing the financial impacts of disaster risks:
