Townhall Meeting: Krisenvorsorge durch die deutsche Botschaft

Townhall Meeting: Krisenvorsorge durch die deutsche Botschaft

Given the heightened relevance of crisis preparedness — an integral aspect in managing the vulnerability of communities in the Philippines — the German Club in partnership with the German Embassy Manila led a fruitful townhall meeting on Crisis Management last June 14, 2018, with guest speakers Mr. Karl-Heinz Schmitz from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Germany, and Mr. Kai Ruth from the Federal Agency for Technical Relief (Technisches Hilfswerk or THW). Among the topics discussed were overviews of crisis management from pre-crisis to post-crisis by Mr. Schmitz and practical steps and tips for natural disasters by Mr. Ruth, giving emphasis on the importance of contingency planning and preparedness of the federal government and its communities in case of a crisis situation. An open forum followed after as the guest speakers additionally discussed the guests’ queries, followed by dinner served by the German Club.
