At the dawn of AADMER, the AADMER 2010-2015 work programme has helped to improve effective mechanisms to significantly reduce the damage caused by disasters to the lives and social, economic and environmental resources of ASEAN Member States and to jointly address catastrophic emergencies in the ASEAN region. During the five (5) years of its implementation, the AADMER 2010-2015 work programme has defined regional mechanisms for joint response and disaster risk reduction at the regional level. Another remarkable achievement of the work programme is that of extensive and far-reaching partnerships. Increased support for stakeholders is demonstrated by the extensive network of partners at different levels. In particular, flagship initiatives have been implemented, which have institutionalized engagement with civil society organizations, for example through the ACDM partnership with the AADMER Partnership Group (APG).
