  • AIDF has done a great job of gathering the right stakeholders across the world under one roof and compiling a very compelling agenda on the disaster & relief management. I think, this will give all the participants a great opportunity to discuss sustainable development solutions. We are very excited to participate in the AIDF Asia Summit 2016 for the first time.

    Ben Mathew Sales Director, Asia, Greenlight Planet
  • I think AIDF summit is very good summit and has brought together very different stakeholders across government, UN agencies, private sector & NGO’s into one platform to discuss the frontier developments in addressing disaster reduction and other sustainable development agendas. Going forward UN will come with sustainable development and what we are discussing in the meeting that AIDF has organised is how especially the Asia Pacific region and South East Asia can prepare for achieving sustainable development goals that the UN will be bringing in September.

    Dr. Shamika Sirimanne Director of Information and Communications Technology and Disaster Risk Reduction Division, UN ESCAP
  • The AIDF summit has been so far fantastic and it has been held in a superb environment. The UNCC is a superb location with all the facilities required. It is ideally located and assessable for all the UN staff and the associated NGO’s. As a company we have met loads of influential key people within the market sector that we work in, so in so many aspects it has been fantastic.
