A DUTY TO PROTECT THE BOUNTY OF A PEOPLE AND THE LANDS THEY LOVE
Southeast Asia is an economic miracle that has transformed the region and millions of lives over the past fifty years. In recognising this success, ASEAN and The World Bank also recognised how much there was to lose. Over the past 30 years, natural disasters have affected more than 400 million lives in the region.
The Southeast Asia Disaster Risk Insurance Facility (SEADRIF) was created to provide financial solutions and technical advice in response to natural disasters. Its success depended on support from the people, public service, and governments of Southeast Asia.
