ESCAP has been promoting the integration of disaster management in development planning, the operational use of space technology in operational disaster management and regional cooperative mechanisms in space technology applications for disaster management. Regional cooperative mechanisms would facilitate equitable sharing of benefits of space technology development and applications among all countries in the region. This study, carried out under RESAP, provides the framework and suggested modalities of regional cooperative mechanisms to address drought and floods and related disasters, and suggested actions towards the institutionalization of the mechanisms
