The Asia-Pacific region is a focal point for natural disasters. The Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami in 2011 took a heavy toll and caused unprecedented damage in Japan.
Having been involved in humanitarian aid as an NGO worker, I realized that cross-sector collaboration among governments, private companies, and NGOs is critical at times of large-scale disasters. By preparing a contingency plan that pools resources and expertise, we can deliver needed assistance to disaster victims even more swiftly and effectively.
Our fundamental aim is to ‘Save as many lives as possible, as quickly as possible’, and I hope that we can play a significant role as a disaster aid platform that can transcend the borders between sectors and nations.
