SDC’s Regional Disaster and Climate Risk Management Hub for Southeast Asia and the Pacific is located at the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangkok.
Established in 2013, the Regional Hub is an important foothold of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) in the two regions in the world most exposed to natural hazards and climate change. The Regional Hub contributes to upholding Swiss foreign policy on disaster risk management (DRM), climate change adaptation (CCA) and humanitarian assistance as part of the overall objective of achieving the sustainable development goals.
The Regional Hub’s expertise ranges from humanitarian and development competencies to specialized skills on GIS and remote sensing, from integrated DRM to CCA, and from policy dialogue over capacity development to field support.
