This roundtable discussion will focus on the importance of a regional damage and loss database for ASEAN as a tool for risk financing. ASEAN recognizes that a regional historical database is crucial in understanding past vulnerabilities as well as current and future risks. It will also serve as a cost-effective tool for governments in developing ex-ante risk financing and risk transfer policies and mechanisms. The roundtable will also touch on the current landscape of disaster risk financing policies in Thailand. Dr. Marqueza Reyes, Team Leader of ASEAN DRFI Programme and Mr. Bill Ho from Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC) will be the presenters. An open forum will follow after the presentations.
