"Pacific Disaster Management Information Platform (PDMIP) is a media to strengthen cooperative endeavor among developing island countries in the Pacific by sharing information on disaster management using the internet. Those countries are Cook Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. The idea was first initiated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. R.M. Marty M. Natalegawa, when receiving the courtesy call of the Bandung Spirit Program with Pacific Countries 2011 on Disaster Relief (BSP 2011) participants on March 22nd 2011 in Jakarta. This platform is designed as a 'link and share' forum among its members regarding disaster relief management, consisting of mitigation, preparedness, rehabilitation, reconstruction, and capacity building. It links Indonesia, Pacific and international disaster management institutions. The platform is a living entity--it will continuously be developed by all stakeholders. It is designed as a venue for multi-way cooperation, coordination, and communication among its parties."
