Strategic Assistance: Asia Pacific Stability and Disaster Relief

Workshop I

Washington, D.C., September 12–13, 2013

  

The Strategic Assistance Project is a collaborative research project of the National Bureau of Asian Research (NBR) and the Japan Center for International Exchange (JCIE) that seeks to develop an alliance-based approach to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HA/DR) operations in South and Southeast Asia by engaging and incorporating military, government, and NGO leadership from the United States and Japan.

At the 1st workshop in Washington, military, government, and NGO leaders from the United States and Japan discussed how the capabilities of the US-Japan Alliance could best be applied to respond to future disasters in South and Southeast Asia.
