In late November, CWS Japan and The Japan Platform (JPF) hosted Afghan DRR stakeholders for a study tour in Japan. The visit aimed to strengthen the relationship between DRR actors in the two countries so they can follow up on both policy and practical DRR measures for Afghanistan through the Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA), the country’s key agency for disaster management. ANDMA was represented by its Deputy Minister, and further collaboration to build DRR capacity in Afghanistan was reaffirmed. CWS Japan is committed to help ensure appropriate Japanese DRR technology can be transferred together with support for strengthening community-based DRR activities in schools and communities.
