Pre-positioning life-saving supplies to improve disaster preparedness

Source(s):  Australian Agency for International Development (AusAid)
United Nation Population Fund Agency (UNFPA) - Asia-Pacific Regional Office (UNFPA)

UNFPA aims to ensure that, during emergencies, the specific needs of women and girls in the Asia–Pacific region are met by governments, United Nations agencies and key stakeholders. One of the ways it seeks to improve this is through a regional initiative that supports the timely distribution of essential supplies by trained partners. Since 2015, the UNFPA Asia–Pacific Regional Office has managed a flagship Regional Prepositioning Initiative, supported by the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Between May 2017-2019, over US $1 million of crucial supplies for sexual and reproductive health, and gender-based violence directly reached almost 84,000 people affected by 28 emergencies across 10 countries.

Prepositioning has been a game-changer for UNFPA's humanitarian work across the Asia-Pacific region, improving the speed, quality and efficiency of emergency responses. This publication provides an overview of the Regional Prepositioning Initiative.
