PWA is currently providing relief and recovery assistance in the Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan. Still ongoing are recovery projects in Japan aimed at revitalizing the fishing communities impacted by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
This Initiative harnesses the existing Sister City relationship of Seattle and Hai Phong. It will improve business continuity planning and form lasting public-private partnerships for disaster risk reduction.
This Initiative increases connectivity and coordination among military and civilian disaster managers in the U.S., Japan, and the Philippines. Hands-on workshops, policy forums, exercises and published papers aim to improve civil-military HA/DR cooperation.
Peace Winds recovery programs are revitalizing the fishing industry in Miyagi and Iwate Prefectures. Our on-the-ground teams are working with fishing cooperatives and local leaders to restore livelihoods, rebuild infrastructure, and energize maritime high school students.
