The Executive Programme on Disaster Governance and Resilience in Asia is structured around four key questions:
1) The Problematic: What are the key challenges of disaster governance and building resilient cities?
2) The Causes and Implications: what are the factors leading to a lack of resilience and poor disaster governance, and what are the longer term implications for disaster governance?
3) Policy Options: What are the policy options and ways forward at various scales of governance, from local to global?
4) Implementation: Who to involve in disaster governance and how to achieve effective disaster governance and resilience.
Examples will be taken from Japan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Indonesia, China, Maldives, Thailand, among others.
