Crisis Management: Shared Experiences and Lesson Learned between Japan and Thailand

 

Theme:

Crisis Management: Shared Experiences and Lesson Learned between Japan and Thailand

 

Rationale:

Recently the world has witnessed more frequent and severer natural disasters globally,causing huge loss of lives, large scale of destruction and devastation. In 2011, it was a remarkable year for both Japan and Thailand due to the Great Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan as well as the severest flood in Thailand. To manage the crisis caused by natural disaster is very crucial because it is about the activities or plans for real-time response which the operation must be quick in order to save lives, mitigate the potential damages and impacts of the disaster, and bring people and society back to normal lives as soon as possible. In principle, there are 6 steps for crisis management, namely response, recovery, reconstruction, prevention, mitigation, and preparedness. Each step comprises of several issues; such as, physical injury and management, evacuation and sheltering, public-private-people partnership for crisis management, humanitarian assistance, and public liability in disaster management, and etc. In order to implement the tasks of crisis management, each step involves several actors and stakeholders, including governmental institutions of central and local levels, IOs, INGOs, private sector, as well as communities. Obviously, all above issues are related to a number of sciences and fields of studies; therefore, multidisciplinary collaborative approach is appropriated to be applied to understand the complicated situation and facilitate the re-design of structure and mechanism responding to the next crisis, if it is going to happen.

 

Objective:

The workshop tilted “Crisis Management: Shared experiences and lesson learned between Japan and Thailand” is aimed to provide the forum for scholars, policy makers as well as people involved in or affected by the crisis caused by disasters in Japan and Thailand in 2011 to share their experiences and draw lesson learned for the better future preparation.
