Resilient recovery of graduating countries in Asia-Pacific: A multi-dimensional risk-lens

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN)
United Nations Development Programme - Asia-Pacific Regional Centre (UNDP Asia-Pacific)
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction - Regional Office for Asia and Pacific (UNDRR AP)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 23 Feb 2021 Location: Online event

This Asia-Pacific Forum on Sustainable Development 2021 side event highlights the challenges faced by and opportunities available to the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) that have recently graduated or are in the process of graduating from LDC status.

Graduating LDCs should take utmost care so that graduation does not become a disruptive force in their development trajectory, as the COVID-19 pandemic has proved to be. Consequently, they should prepare appropriate strategies and action plans and engage with their development partners to ensure a smooth integration into mid-income status.

Developing climate and disaster resilience is a key element that needs to be considered as such countries recover from the pandemic to protect development gains.

The session will highlight the climate and disaster risks faced by such countries and will outline insights from graduating countries and experts on the topic. The event will result in key recommendations that will be incorporated into the forthcoming Asia-Pacific Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction.

Time: 12:15 - 13:45 Bangkok Time
