Connecting Government, Corporate Sector and the Communities..

We are dedicated in our efforts for disaster reduction and shall continue working in this direction. In furtherance of this effort, we are committed to expanded collaboration among different stakeholders.

While we recognize the primary responsibility of the governments in disaster reduction, we realize that considering the nature of disasters, their frequency and their complexity, the involvement of corporate sector in disaster reduction makes good business sense. The development of suitable institutional mechanisms with sound legal framework is necessary to facilitate Public-Private Partnership. The corporate sector engagement is essential for the success of disaster reduction efforts.

The involvement of corporate sector in disaster reduction is a sound business proposition and also enables the corporate sector to demonstrate commitment to humanitarian concerns as responsible corporate citizens.

The information and communication technologies (ICT) have a critical role in facilitating disaster management in a transparent and effective manner. The corporate sector has a key role in facilitating the use of ICT for disaster management.

We resolve and propose to engage in a sustained process for the establishment of Platform for Public-Private Partnership (P4PPP) and the development of following products:

1.   Checklist and Guidelines for Chief Executive Officers (CEOs)
2.   Diary of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for corporate executives on disaster preparedness and response
3.   Reference Manual on disaster management for the corporate sector
4.   Corporate-Community Interface (CCI) handbook on disaster and environmental management

We further propose to engage into a process of sharing, dissemination and application of these documents through the Platform for Public-Private Partnership (P4PPP).
