Proceedings of the Regional Knowledge Forum on Post-Disaster Recovery

On 2021 October 2015, over 80 government officials and decision makers, development partners, and civil society representatives from Cambodia, Indonesia, Philippines, and Thailand participated in the Regional Knowledge Forum on Post-Disaster Recovery, organized by ADB in Manila. The regional knowledge forum provided a venue to share common challenges and possible solutions on planning and managing recovery programs based on lessons and good practices from recovery programs for 2005 Hurricane Katrina and 2012 Hurricane Sandy in the United States; the 2011 floods in Thailand; the 2004 tsunami in Aceh and Nias, Indonesia; and the 2006 earthquake in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The forum thus allowed a vibrant exchange of ideas and insights which were especially useful to the participants from the Philippines, those from the Eastern Visayas region who are still in the implementation stage of recovery and reconstruction post-Typhoon Yolanda. The forum was made possible by the IDRM Fund of ADB, supported by the Government of Canada.
