From the Document: "In order to successfully identify each country's national capabilities it is necessary to evaluate the level of competency within the region as a whole. In an effort to gauge the status of disaster preparedness planning in Southeast Asia and to facilitate the sharing of best practices in disaster preparedness and response, the United States Pacific Command (USPACOM), the United States Army Pacific (USARPAC), the Center of Excellence in Disaster Management & Humanitarian Assistance (COE), and the Office of the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense (Installations & Environment) hosted the 'Southeast Asia Seismic Disaster Preparedness Conference' in Honolulu, Hawaii, on September 26-28, 2005. Co-sponsored by the United States Army War College's Center for Strategic Leadership and the United States Embassy, Bangkok, the conference reinforced the U.S. Combating Terrorism strategy by supporting the struggle against radical ideology, identifying opportunities for military support to civil authority in building legitimacy with the population, and fostering regional defense security cooperation on seismic disaster response and planning"
