The ISDR-Asia Partnership (IAP) is an informal multi-stakeholder forum for achieving disaster risk reduction through the implementation of the Sendai Framework and the Asia Regional Plan. The forum includes governments, intergovernmental organizations, civil society organizations, the UN, international organizations, and bilateral and multilateral donors.
The Asia Regional Plan designated the IAP Forum as an instrumental mechanism to ensure the plan’s implementation and monitor its progress. Specifically, the Action Plan 2018-2020 identifies some key functions of the IAP Forum as:
a. Periodically assess progress in implementation of the Asia Regional Plan and the Sendai Framework.
b. Share lessons and identify key gaps in the implementation of disaster risk reduction in the region. c. Provide or mobilize technical expertise and guidance on disaster risk reduction at the regional level.
d. Advocate for accelerated implementation of the Sendai Framework.
