The Asia-Pacific region contains a diverse
array of cultures, environments, and societies. One of the fastest growing
economic regions in the world, it is also the most disaster-prone. While
natural disasters affect the region frequently, as this region continues
along its path of development, regional partnerships will be essential
in developing the capacities of countries to reduce risk and vulnerability,
and to respond to disasters.
