(1) CABARET Project: Capacity Building in Asia for Resilience Education
Mandalay Technological University has been participating in CABARET Project (Capacity Building in Asia for Resilience Education). This project is led by University of Huddersfield (United Kingdom), and all other partners are University of Central Lancashire (United Kingdom), IHC Cantabria Environmental Hydraulics Institute (Spain), University of Mining and Geology (Bulgaria), University of Malta (Malta), Riga Technical University (Latvia), University of Moratuwa (Sri Lanka), University of Peradeniya (UoP) (Sri Lanka), Institute of Technology Bandung (Indonesia), Andalas University (Indonesia), The Maldives National University (Maldives), De La Salle University(Philippines), Ateneo de Manila University (Philippines), Mandalay Technological University (Myanmar), and University of Yangon(Myanmar).
The aim of the CABARET project is to promote international cooperation at the regional level, between Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) in Asia and Europe, and among Asian HEIs themselves, to improve remote sensing technology for multi-hazard early warning and increase resilience among coastal communities. It will build capacity, foster regional integration and cooperation through joint initiatives, sharing of good practices and cooperation among HEIs in Asia and Europe. CABARET will strengthen relations between HEIs and the wider economic and social environment through its focus on coastal communities, many of which are under severe pressure resulting from planned and unplanned development, population growth and human induced vulnerability, coastal hazards with increasing frequency and magnitude, and the impacts of global climate change.
Mandalay Technological University team has participated in International Conference on Disaster Risk Management hosted by Andalas University from Indonesia on 2-4 May 2018. MTU team also joined the experts from partner countries at meeting of CABARET Project which was alongside event with the Conference. This project contributes to build the regional network in the field of Disaster Resilience and enhances the regional cooperation of MTU to share the knowledge and experiences.
