Think Through Disaster Response Before You Need To with STAR-TIDES

The annual STAR-TIDES event is running 20-21 October, this time online.

I’m participating in a panel focused on improving resiliency across the many stovepipes of response in crisis.

STAR-TIDES is a global knowledge-sharing network that focuses on building sustainable resilience, promoting human security (freedom from want and freedom from fear), and creating life-changing social and economic activities.

STAR-TIDES is a community. The name stands for Sharing To Accelerate Research – Transformative Innovation for Development and Emergency Support. In the past STAR-TIDES has been instrumental in working with numerous real-world events, from Cyclones Sidr in Bangladesh (2007), Nargis in Myanmar (2008), and Pam in Vanuatu (2015), to the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the 2011 great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, and Hurricane Sandy in 2012, Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda in the Philippines (2013), the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico in 2017.

Details of the coming event are at:  The event aims to be valuable to members of the national defense, security, emergency response, and sustainable resilience communities.
