13 relevant effective Ministerial conference Page 17 of *Is the Ministerial Conference a relevant regional initiative and policy forum in which a commitment to disaster risk reduction can be demonstrated and priority actions agreed? 3.3 Realistic commitment is needed Pacific not well represented Should concentrate on implementation of action plans in the region Held less often Ministers to be held accountable

14 IAP relevance and value Page 18 of a *Is the IAP (ISDR Asia Partnership) a relevant regional initiative and forum in which a commitment to disaster risk reduction can be demonstrated and priority actions agreed? 3.3 a More regular meetings Excellent forum Management core could be beyond ISDR Focus on regional cooperation/coordination More systematic organization generally

15 other organizations and partners Page 19 of *Are there organizations active in DRR in the region that you believe ISDR could or should have closer ties and working relationships? 3.4 Government should be primary entry point not NGOs Open to all practitioners, get technical ASEAN, SAARC, others… UN Country Teams Media groups, WB/ADB country offices Private sector

16 link to global initiatives Page 20 of *In your view, does ISDR Asia Pacific Secretariat have adequate linkages to the more global initiatives in DRR? 3.5 Good connections Regional priorities need to come from the region, passed up to global Gap in info/communications seem to be from GVA Regional driving global DRM is region-specific

19 climate change adaptation and DRR and ISDR Page 26 of *Climate change and adaptation and the links to disaster risk reduction is of increased interest to much of the international community, finally. Do you think there should be a lead role for ISDR, (or a responsibility that ISDR should adopt), to better inform regional governments and stakeholders of the best available information on this topic as it relates to DRR? 4.6 Clear message here ISDR needs to be in on this debate All three roles from previous question MUST be maintained Need to find the niche in CCA for ISDR Regional initiatives, local lessons

20 … a vision for the future … Page 27 of *Finally in one sentence, can you describe your vision for ISDR in ten years from now, in 2015? 4.7 In 10 years, ideally DRR will be common sense !!! The top most advisory organization on DRR A vibrant movement that brings regional actors together By then, advocacy with Governments will be unnecessary International conferences should be banned
