Capacity Building in Asia for Resilience Education for Strengthening MHEW for Coastal Resilience

Research output: Contribution to conference typesAbstractpeer-review


CABARET, a three year project funded by the ERASMUS Plus Programme of the European Commission was implemented in Asia (Region 6) to enhance coastal resilience in Asia through regional cooperation among higher education institutions (HEIs) and other socioeconomic actors. This is to address the impact of the increasing occurrence of coastal hazards and to enhance resilience in the region. These hazards are caused by an unprecedented level of development along with climate change. Hence, the project conducted an extensive literature review to develop an initial conceptual framework, to identify gaps in present multi-hazard early warning systems and to assess the role played by HEIs with their challenges in doing so. Accordingly, the project delivered a roadmap, an innovation hub, socio-economic partnerships along with a major online open course (MOOC) platform as its outcomes. these outcomes were achieved through conducting 4 international training workshops with more than 230 participants on MHEW and coastal resilience among HEIs members and socio-economic actors across Asia. 9 HEIs institutes from 5 Asian countries participated in workshops as partner countries with resource persons from 6 programme countries in Europe. Besides, 8 staff-exchanges with more than 35 participants, about 40 research papers, 5 national position papers, 1 regional paper, 5 briefing papers, 1 secondment activity, 6 sandpit activities were delivered. these outcomes were disseminated at many international conferences and other project media.
