OCHA Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (ROAP), has launched the second edition of its flagship publication "Disaster Response in Asia and the Pacific: A Guide to International Tools and Services".
First published in 2013, the Guide is primarily designed to help disaster managers in national governments in Asia and the Pacific more effectively mobilize international and regional tools and services during a disaster response.
The original Guide was developed in consultation with government officials across Asia and the Pacific and representatives of intergovernmental organizations, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (RCRC Movement), national and international NGOs, donors and other key agencies worldwide. These partners were also consulted for the revised Guide.
