The global pandemic in 2020 has affected the way we work and function; both at the national and international level. In particular, the disaster management sector had to prepare for and manage disasters against the backdrop of COVID-19. The types, dynamics and dimensions of disaster threats will be more complex in the future and require far more analysis and preparation to re-think strategies and transform to strengthen capabilities and capacities for the future. Thus, the theme for SPDDM 2021 is “Advancing Disaster Management: Into a Future of Possibilities” to spark discourse on identifying future humanitarian trends and identifying challenges and opportunities. The theme will also facilitate discussions on key outputs in the AADMER Work Programme 2021-2025 such as leadership, cooperation, technology and innovation as well as effective resource mobilisation for stronger coordination among ASEAN Member States.
