One year on since the adoption of the Five Point Consensus on Myanmar was reached, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and its member states have not achieved any progress to address the catastrophic political, human rights and humanitarian crisis in Myanmar.
In marking the occasion, civil society organizations called on ASEAN to move beyond the consensus and have raised serious concerns about whether the ASEAN’s disaster management body, ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre), is suited to deliver humanitarian assistance in Myanmar as mandated under the consensus. Cambodia, current Chair of ASEAN, is to host a Consultative Meeting on ASEAN humanitarian assistance to Myanmar on May 6th.
Progressive Voice, Asian Forum for Human Rights and Development (FORUM-ASIA), and CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation invite you to a webinar with a panel of regional and local experts to discuss expectations and explore challenges of ASEAN’s approach to humanitarian assistance in Myanmar.
