PWA responds to natural disasters around the Asia-Pacific through local partnerships, engaging in immediate relief and economic recovery programs. We utilize our network of NGOs, national governments and international responders to coordinate and support efficient and effective response.
This Initiative strengthens preparedness and response at the city level. PWA, Vietnam and U.S. sister cities are working together to share best practices and innovative technology in disaster management.
This Initiative increases connectivity and coordination among military and civilian disaster managers in the U.S. and Japan. The multi-year initiative features hands-on workshops, policy forums and published reports on civil-military HA/DR cooperation.
“Greater readiness is the foundation for effective disaster response. Peace Winds America’s network connects U.S. and Japanese resources and information to communities around the Pacific that need them most. We cannot control nature, but preparation and cooperation can keep a natural disaster from becoming a humanitarian crisis.”
- Rep. Jim McDermott, Honorary Chairman of the Board, Peace Winds America
