The 12th Asia-Oceania Group on Earth Observations (AOGEO) Symposium was convened on 2-4 November 2019, at Australian National University in Canberra, Australia. The sectional meeting of the Asian Water Cycle Initiative (AWCI) was attended by 40 participants from 10 countries. Following the opening session, which includes a message from the APN as one of the key supporters, representatives from countries implementing the Platforms on Water Resilience and Disasters promoted by the International Flood Initiative (IFI), such as the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and Indonesia, reported the progress of the Platform projects in their countries. Then, fruitful discussions followed on roadmaps toward the achievement of the Sendai Framework, the Paris Agreement, and SDGs and the promotion of a regional cooperative framework among the participating countries.
