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. 

Each country has undertaken a Country Specific Baseline Survey to understand the current context and engagement of government entities, local NGOs/civil society organizations,  international organizations, academia and the media in emergency response. Baseline Survey will serve as a benchmark to inform decisions on interventions to be carried out in defining roadmaps towards strengthening emergency response capacities of local actors at country level which will be aggregated at the regional level for the program. The baseline survey mainly focused on key local actors in emergency response in Myanmar, including government organizations, local non-government organizations, and private sector entities.
