From disaster risk management, climate change and environment to urban development, this category focuses on education and preparedness on issues which intersect nature and society.
Health and labor are at the core of happy, productive lives. TDLC addresses key issues -- human resource development in health care, policy dialogue on urgent agenda such as the A/H1N1 influenza, and international labor issues, as it strives to play a role to support better, safer living.
Even distribution of knowledge and capacity for knowledge creation, particularly for children and youths, is becoming increasingly important for a prosperous world. Higher education and appropriate social applications of science and technology are critical in order to build the wealth of nations. Through its programs in Education and Science & Technology, TDLC seeks to contribute for a brighter future.
This thematic group includes microfinance training, management courses for small and medium size enterprises, corporate social responsibility (CSR) courses, and seminars on Public-Private Partnership (PPP).
Through these courses, TDLC seeks to strengthen the competitiveness of private companies and individuals, while realizing sustainable business growth in developing countries.
TDLC covers a range of other topics such as economic issues, regional integration in Asia, and agriculture. Once critical mass is accumulated in particular subject areas, other thematic groups will be established accordingly.
