Strategic Assistance: Asia Pacific Stability and Disaster Relief

Workshop III

Tokyo, September 11–12, 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.

The third workshop provided the project research team the opportunity to engage with key constituencies within the US., Japanese, and international HA/DR communities, present tentative recommendations designed to enhance US-Japan cooperation and coordination on HA/DR, and move toward operationalizing the Strategic Assistance concept.
