|Initial Meeting between UTokyo-YTU team and GAD Bago District Office|
In addition, U Tin Tun Zaw (Deputy Director of Bago Township) joined the UTokyo-YTU team in going to a small village in Thanatpin Township. The group visited the village to ask the potential of doing a 2-3 days immersion visit by UTokyo undergraduate students headed by Dr. Akiyuki Kawasaki and several YTU students. The aim of the immersion visit was to further understand the daily lifestyle of the local villagers. This understanding aids in developing the local community level disaster management system that the UTokyo-YTU collaboration is currently developing. This understanding strengthens the potential effectiveness of the disaster management system in the local community level implementation. Figure below shows the picture of the meeting of the group with the local villagers.
