This project intends to assess the effectiveness of crisis preparedness and response mechanisms in the Indo-Pacific region during the COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to evaluate the current state of the humanitarian landscape and its resiliency in dealing with simultaneous crises (disaster and pandemic happening concurrently). More specifically, it will evaluate how countries, organisations, and communities have (or have not) adapted to converging risks with implications for civil-military partnerships in the Indo-Pacific region. In doing so, this project will assess the emerging concept of "Strategic Resilience" to reduce vulnerabilities with a specific focus on the Indo-Pacific.
