The ASEAN Strategic Policy Dialogue on Disaster Management (SPDDM) is co-organised by the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), ASEAN Secretariat and the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre) and is held annually in Singapore, in conjunction with the World Humanitarian Day. The inaugural SPDDM in 2015 provided an important impetus to the development of the “ASEAN Vision 2025 on Disaster Management”, charting the strategic direction for ASEAN in disaster management over the next decade. The S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) serves as the 2018 SPDDM knowledge partner for its theme “Strengthening a Disaster Resilient ASEAN through effective cooperation and innovation.” The dialogue will focus on strengthening resilience by enhancing cross-sectoral bodies and multi-stakeholder cooperation; and cultivating innovation to enhance ASEAN’s disaster management capabilities.
