Senior Civil Military Leaders seminar series
The Senior Civil-Military Leaders seminar series focuses on building regional cooperation in the Asia-Pacific that came about in the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami that devastated part of South and Southeast Asia.
The content focuses on identifying ways in which civilian and military stakeholders can collaborate to improve disaster resiliency and response capacity both regionally and globally. Workshop is aimed at senior-level participants who can build relationships with each other as well as pass on their years of expertise on to a younger generation.
A significant amount of disaster risk reduction efforts are being carried out by civilian and military actors at the national, regional and international levels, including the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2010. The workshop series is designed to be an annual regional forum where senior actors can have regular dialogue to facilitate important relationships and synergy of efforts prior to a disaster event.
