Seminar: Demand for disaster relief solutions in Asia

Business Sweden invite you to participate in a seminar about disaster relief in Asia and Thailand and the Philippines in particular.

Thailand and the Philippines continue to have a great need for solutions that can assist in emergency relief efforts. Both countries are currently working on improving the level of preparedness and resilience to disasters. Bangkok is also the Asia Pacific hub and center for decision making for many UN Agencies and programs, enabling relationship building on a strategic Asian level.

In this seminar we will talk about demand for solutions and the need for partnerships in the region. We will also introduce a business delegation that will go to Bangkok and Manilla on 30 November to 3 December, as well as the Swedish pavilion at the largest humanitarian aid fair in the world, AidEx in Brussels 18-19 November.

We have identified the following areas that are of high interest for procurement:

Infrastructure related solutions:

  • Equipment to recover collapsed buildings
  • Multipurpose search & rescue road vehicles and equipment
  • Equipment to search on water (boats, ships, canoes etc.)
  • Anti-flooding and anti-wave protection
  • Security and surveillance
  • Fire protection

Information and Communication Technology:

  • Information search and rescue equipment
  • Early warning systems
  • Risk assessment tools and software to identify the most vulnerable areas for disaster

Water and sanitation:

  • Water purification equipment and products
  • Water pumps
  • Water and bladder tanks
  • Vehicles for purifying and delivering drinking water
  • Equipment to protect water reservoirs

Emergency relief:

  • Latrines
  • Medical equipment
  • Mobile hospital products and equipment
  • Hygiene products
  • Emergency and transitional shelters
