TAEF Program on
Asia faces severe natural disaster challenges, and many of them have already caused grave transnational consequences. In recent years, many countries have started promoting state-level disaster preparedness and relief projects, while also transforming local communities into critical disaster resilience unit. We hope to collaborate with related institutions, research facilities, hospitals, medical centers, and schools to search for a common resilience project to combat regional disasters in Asia.
Our work focus includes holding capacity building projects, enhancing cooperation with international aid agencies, providing training and mutual learning opportunities for related personnel.
