Executive Summary

The Southeast Asian region is remarkably vulnerable to natural disasters which repeatedly cause devastations to both human lives and properties. However, current disaster relief efforts have not lived up to the high standards. Even worse is that humanitarian efforts have been frequently frustrated by the rejections from national authorities under the name of "Sovereignty". All these problems necessitate a widely accepted, politically neutral, well coordinated and effectively governed organization within the region. This research paper provides a conceptual framework for enhancing regional governance in disaster management.
