SLPP private sector

A news report in economynext.com featured discussions held in the forum organized by the Sri Lanka Preparedness Partnership ( SLPP)  for consultations with the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce about reducing the vulnerability of the private sector to disasters and make them more prepared.

Companies in Sri Lanka, which have been hit by successive droughts and floods in recent years, can reduce risk to disasters by taking precautions like being aware of hazards, having contingency plans and increasing supply chain flexibility. 

The SLPP is an initiative of the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center of Bangkok and has representation from the Disaster Management Center (DMC), National Disaster Relief Services Center (NDRSC), Center for Humanitarian Affairs (CHA) and the Ceylon Chamber of Commerce.
