The meeting agreed to work towards the establishment of regional disaster management communication capacity in Asia and the Pacific (DCCAP) as an important area interagency cooperation, and recommended to develop the concept further with emphasis on multi-stakeholder public-private partnership approach. This meeting reviewed the concept paper and suggested joint future actions towards building the regional platform for Disaster Communications Management and Capacities. The meeting provided also a venue to exchange views on other issues of ICT development trends, challenges and opportunities, especially for effective disaster risk reduction and socio-economic development in the region where IWG members could work together.
