Myanmar Baseline Assessment Report

The Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, launched the program in 2016 on 'Strengthening Capacity of Government, Local Humanitarian Organizations and the Private Sector on Preparedness for Emergency Response' in six Asian countries: Cambodia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. 

Transitioning into 2019, Myanmar takes the lead in taking APP forward

ADPC travelled to Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar to discuss MPP's upcoming activities and its co-chairship of the 4th APP Regional Steering Committee (APPRSC) 

Myanmar Preparedness Partnership (MPP) – the national multi-stakeholder platform part of APP has been implementing priority interventions identified through a baseline study and MPP roadmap process with support from ADPC.

APP Country Action Plans

One of the foremost activities implemented under the program was to undertake Baseline Assessment studies to map out the current status of the humanitarian ecosystem for managing disasters at the institutional, organizational and operational levels. The assessment studies have been carried out in all program countries to assess capacities, systems, and inter-agency coordination mechanisms of key stakeholders-  Governments, International NGOs, local humanitarian organisations, academic institutions and civil society organizations working in disaster preparedness and emergency response.
