The Asian Ministerial Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) serves as the main regional platform for promoting coordination and cooperation on DRR and the implementation of the Sendai Framework. Held every two years, the AMCDRR brings together Member States and Intergovernmental Organisations, along with international and national organisations and stakeholder groups, to accelerate progress in disaster risk reduction. The conference is instrumental in strengthening DRR in the region by sharing good practice and knowledge and forging partnerships.
The eighth session of this conference, and the second after the adoption of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, was co-hosted by the Government of Mongolia and UNISDR in Ulaanbaatar, 3-6 July 2018. Key outcome documents from the 2018 AMCDRR were the Ulaanbaatar Declaration and the regional Action Plan 2018-2020. It was attended by 3584 participants from 50 countries and over 1500 organisations participated in the Conference, which featured several substantive sessions and a high-level Asian Leaders Meeting. The next AMCDRR will be in the year 2020 and will be co-hosted by the Government of Australia.
