In accordance with Basel Accord, strengthened credit rating and risk management systems have been required to be built in commercial banks. Macroeconomic environment assessment plays a very important role in these systems. In the post-crisis world, all countries have to tackle increasingly complex issues in the international and domestic economic environment. In particular, commercial banks face a great challenge in the assessment field.

Many countries have put forward a series of measures to improve their financial supervision and credit rating systems, especially the credit rating system in commercial banks. The Chinese government has paid much attention to implementing the Basel Accord and improving risk management systems in its commercial banks. It is important for each country to share new approaches and experience in macroeconomic environment assessment field, and by doing so, to promote financial system stabilization.

In order to promote experience-sharing on economic environment assessment for credit rating in commercial banks, the Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (AFDC) in collaboration with the World Bank, Tokyo Development Learning Center, The World Bank (TDLC), Sri Lanka Distance Learning Center and Korean Development Institute (KDI) School will hold a half-day VC seminar, to tackle the challenges in economic environment assessment in commercial banks in the post-crisis world.

Water Cycle Simulation of Sri Lanka

The World Bank East Asia and Pacific Region, the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN), Foundation for Riverfront Improvement and Restoration and Tokyo Development Learning Center, are hosting the Global 4 Dimensions Water Cycle Management Seminar- connecting with China, Indonesia, Madagascar, Vietnam, Philippines, Laos and Japan via videoconferencing system.

Global 4 Dimensions Water Cycle Management is a system that simulate past, present and future water cycle systems and visualizes the result with easy-to-understand graphics. It provides county based information on water that helps policy makers when drawing up and executing strategic action plans. This system is the world’s latest cutting-edge water cycle and water resource management technology and was originated in Japan. Even countries with insufficient funds and access to basic water cycle data information can visualize their nationwide water circulation system by using satellite systems at low cost. It is expected to be the powerful tool in policy making of water cycle and water resource management.

Modernization of Hydrometeorological Services and Early Warning Systems

Session 3: Disaster Risk Management in East Asia and the Pacific – 2011 Series

Thursday, July 28, 2011, Time: 10:00-13:00 (JST)

Yuri Mechitov—World Bank

Major advances in observation, analysis and prediction of high-impact weather and climate events have been achieved by some countries and are available to all. Effective Early Warning Systems (EWS) building on such information have substantially reduced deaths and injuries from severe weather events. National Meteorological Systems in many developing countries lack the capacity to access recent scientific and technical advances. Such agencies have limited observation networks, little experience in using numerical weather prediction, few opportunities for training, and have recurrent difficulty retaining their best-qualified staff. These circumstances weaken service delivery. The poor weather information services provided in these countries often make early warnings impossible, and lack of warning in turn leads to economic damage and loss of life that could have been avoided.

The objective of this session is to share knowledge and experiences on hydromet modernization initiatives for developing countries.

Scaling-up and Integration of Community Knowledge into Disaster Risk Reduction

Session 2: Disaster Risk Management in East Asia and the Pacific – 2011 Series

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 Time: 15:00-18:00 (JST)

Simone D. McCourtie—World Bank

Communities are a reservoir of collective wisdom for disaster risk reduction. Such wisdom and community practices, though some are lost, have been transferred over many years. The community is the key actor and primary beneficiary; they can make best judgment of their own vulnerability by use of own resources. Over the last couple of decades, it has become apparent that top-down approaches to disaster risk management alone fail to address the specific local needs of vulnerable communities. Given this fact, it has also become clear that there is a strong need to recognize the potential community knowledge and actions and to shift to a bottom-up approach that uses appropriate community practices as the base for policy formulation.

This session will highlight various innovative community practices to draw lessons from for how to advocate for and apply principles of community engagement in disaster risk reduction across different countries and levels of society. It will also provide participants with opportunities to discuss about bottom-up approaches linking up with national and international level to address the complexity of community’s vulnerability issues.

Making Women’s Voices Count in Disaster Risk Reduction Programs

Session 1: Disaster Risk Management in East Asia and the Pacific – 2011 Series

Wednesday, June 1, 2011 Time: 11:00-14:00 (JST)

Scott Wallace—World Bank

Women and men’s different needs, roles and opportunities put women and men differently at risk from disasters and influences emergency management strategies. Women and men experience disaster impacts differently in health, safety, community support, and resource needs at the household and community levels. It is therefore important that women’s and men’s particular vulnerabilities and needs are assessed and taken into consideration into Disaster Risk Management (DRM) strategies.

This session will provide participants with an understanding of the key findings and tools for taking into account women and men’s particular needs, roles and opportunities into DRM programs and share lessons learnt on how gender dimension can be incorporated in a Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and recovery programs.
