December 9, 2020 (Wednesday)
4-5pm Seoul-Tokyo / 12:45pm Kathmandu
Practitioners from several countries in Asia will share their reflections on multilateral cooperation within the region in the fields of natural disasters and COVID-19, both serious non-traditional security threats. The webinar will share both best practices and challenges from civil society work on the ground, considering experience in transboundary collaboration and natural disasters in South Asia, and lessons for Northeast Asia – where regional collaborative mechanisms are few. Further, it will discuss the strong incentive for regional cooperation in order to prevent, mitigate and manage threats, as well as the potential positive impact this can have on geopolitical relations from a peacebuilding perspective.
In collaboration with Peace Boat Disaster Relief (PBV).
Moderator: Meri Joyce (GPPAC Northeast Asia Regional Liaison Officer)
Speakers: Ikuno Suzuki (Peace Boat Disaster Relief, PBV)
Takeshi Komino (CWS Japan / Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network)
