This handbook provides decision makers, planners, responders and disaster management practitioners with an overview of the disaster management structure, policies, laws, and plans for ASEAN countries.

The handbook presents an overview of natural and man-made threats most likely to affect ASEAN countries, basic country background information, including cultural, demographic, geographic, infrastructure and other data, as well as endemic conditions such as poverty, water and sanitation, food security and other humanitarian issues. It also provides an overview of the health situation in each country and disease surveillance.

Furthermore, the handbook includes information on key national entities involved in disaster management, disaster response and preparation, and the military’s role in disaster relief is discussed. Information on UN agencies, international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), major local NGOs, and key U.S. agencies and programs in the country is also provided. The overall aim is to provide a guide that brings together important information about disaster management and response for each country in an effort to provide a basic understanding for the reader.
