Disaster Response in Asia and the Pacific: A Guide to International Tools and Services

This Guide, produced in 2010 for the OCHA Regional Office in Asia and the Pacific (OCHA ROAP), is designed to help national disaster management organizations (NDMOs) and relevant line ministries within national governments gain basic knowledge of how to use international humanitarian response tools and services. Translated into Chinese, Japanese, and Bahasa Indonesia, this guide seeks to support the growing disaster response and disaster response preparedness capabilities that exist at national levels across the Asia and the Pacific region.
