2. The Purpose of ACP – Promotion of Safety Management

The first motif force for organizing ACP came from our severe experience in disasters – volcanic eruptions, typhoons, floods, earthquakes, tsunami, etc. – which are common in South-East Asia and Japan. Reviewing these experiences Dr. Atsushi Hamana, the chairperson of ACP, believed firmly of the necessity for Asian Universities to cooperate each other in developing knowledge and know-how for “Safety Management”. “Safety Management” refers to the ways of managing people appropriately and effectively in a society to provide “Safety and Comfort” in handling various types of disasters.

3. Collaboration for “Global” Education System

ACP universities are ready to share their own academic materials – classes, methods, systems, local facilities and so on – so that the students of member universities can make use of these materials and grow into Asia’s future leaders of Safety Management.
To realize this it is indispensable for ACP universities to prepare systems which enable students to study abroad actively among Asian countries.
