ASEAN-ERAT Refresher Course for ARDEX 2023
Thirteen ASEAN-ERAT members from ASEAN Member States, ASEAN Secretariat and the the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre) were deployed to the ASEAN Regional Disaster Response Simulation Exercise 2023 (ARDEX-23) in Yogyakarta, Indonesia as the exercise player. In preparation for that, the AHA Centre, supported by Japan-ASEAN Integration Fund (JAIF) and European Union in ASEAN, organised a refresher course, which aimed to refresh knowledge and enhance preparation of ASEAN-ERAT members before the deployment.
During the course, ASEAN-ERAT also had the opportunity to enhance their understanding on interoperability between ASEAN-ERAT and United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) United Nations OCHA in the event of disaster.
