Purpose: This paper is part of the ERASMUS+ funded Strengthening University Enterprise Collaboration for Resilient Communities in Asia (SECRA) project. SECRA aimed to map collaborative architecture between partner universities and the public/private sectors, to provide a contextualised collaboration framework for disaster resilience in South-East Asia.
Methods: Documentary reviews were conducted in partner countries to establish the current context of disaster resilience university enterprise collaborations and identify good practices. A concept-centric approach permitted the synthesis of concepts from each country review, allowing for comparisons to be made between collaborative practices that impact the success of disaster resilience collaborations.
Results: The review identified that funding, continuity, long-term strategic plans and practical implementation are lacking in disaster resilience university enterprise collaborations in the partner countries. However, each country demonstrated good practices and identified significant enablers and barriers that impact disaster resilience collaborations.
Implications: This paper has the potential to inform policies and practices at an institutional and governmental level and promote the exchange of ideas between academics and policy makers in South-East Asia for developing disaster resilience. The results have substantial relevance within the Asian context, as governments have intensified the adoption of measures to encourage and improve university enterprise collaborations for disaster resilience. Further research is needed to understand real-word experiences in disaster resilience collaborations, to provide insights into barriers, enablers and good practices in disaster resilience collaborations from an 'on the ground perspective'.
