Strategic Assistance: Asia Pacific Stability and Disaster Relief

Workshop II

Singapore, March 8–9, 2014

  

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.

This second workshop was designed to solicit input regarding the region’s likely reaction to the proposed US-Japan Strategic Assistance concept from leaders in the United States, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Australia, the Philippines, Myanmar, and Thailand, and to assess the regional perceptions of the current and future threat to regional stability that is posed by major disasters.
