JAKARTA, April 20 (Xinhua) -- Delegates from South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Caribbean countries are attending a meeting in Indonesia's Aceh province to discuss disaster risk management, an official said.
A total of 13 nations take part in the event which will end on April 26, according to Dewi Savitri Wahab, an official at the Indonesian Foreign Ministry.
Climate change is also one of the major issues discussed on the meeting, she was quoted by Antara news wire as saying.
