As ASEAN member states are located in disaster-prone areas, the association should intensify cooperation and advance the regional mechanisms in place to ensure effectiveness in tackling disaster management efforts, he said. The symposium aims to facilitate better disaster management efforts through six thematic discussions, focusing on disaster policymaking in Southeast Asia, early warning system and effective response operations through advanced technology and innovations, strengthening community resilience, advancing disaster risk financing and insurance, and bridging global and regional partnership on disaster management. Founded in 1967, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) groups 10 member countries, namely Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
