CApacity Building in Asia for Resilience EducaTion

Project: ResearchEU Government

Description

CABARET aims to promote international cooperation between Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) in Asia and Europe, and among Asian HEIs themselves, to improve multi-hazard early warning and increase resilience among coastal communities. CABARET will strengthen relations between HEIs and the wider economic and social environment through its focus on coastal communities, many of which are under severe pressure resulting from planned and unplanned development, population growth and human induced vulnerability, coastal hazards with increasing frequency and magnitude, and the impacts of global climate change. It will build capacity, foster regional integration and cooperation through joint initiatives, sharing of good practices and cooperation among HEIs in Asia and Europe.
CABARET will empower individuals and organisations with the skills, competencies and credentials needed to promote and sustain regional cooperation within Asia and Europe, and within Asia itself, aimed at reducing the likelihood and impact of disasters in coastal communities. It will enhance the capacities of the partner HEIs in Asia to meet (match) the challenges and specific needs of the wider economic and social environment - strengthening the internationalisation of HEIs and their capacity to network effectively in research, scientific and technological innovation, faciliate the exchange of experience and practice despite of diversity, and increase the ability of partner HEIs in Asia to build relationships with relevant socio-economic actors.
