Deepening assistance to governments in South Asia to reduce disaster risks by convening not only the deep technical expertise required, but also addressing system-wide perspectives on the processes of resilience in the infrastructure sector. Ensuring that resilient systems are established and well operated, including procedures to manage and recover from shocks is a key take away from this engagement. Therefore, opportunities to learn and exchange with peers from around the world, such as the one facilitated by this grant, provide meaningful contributions to bringing resilience to practice.
