ICT Global Link promotes the formation of a network among young leaders and reinforces their collaborative efforts toward intellectual dialogue on disaster education issues.

In Asia, the number of youth participation in volunteering is growing fast in addressing various issues, one of which is natural disaster. ICT Global Link intends to establish partnerships between Japan, Africa and ASEAN with fast-growing youth participation. ICT Global Link provides opportunities for youths in Japan, Africa and ASEAN to learn from each other, to inspire one another and to seek for seeds for collaboration.

To do so, we provide the Youth Intergovernmental Platform (YIP) for stake holders to address natural disaster challenges, discuss and adopt regional disaster risk reduction strategies that are integrated with an inclusive, sustainable development agenda for the Asia-Pacific region.
