KIF ASIA ACIFIC

OVERVIEW

The Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing region in the world, consisting of the world’s largest landmass and a home to over 4.30 billion people (nearly 60 per cent of the world’s population). Seventeen of the world’s 31 ‘mega-cities’ are located in the region, with mobility contributing to rapid urbanization.

At a national level in the region, KIF Global has established our first national chapter KIF Japan in Tokyo in 2012, in response to the 2011 Great East Japan Disaster and Earthquake as part of our disaster initiative StarAngel. KIF Japan is the oldest national chapter and most active in main initiatives.

At a global level, KIF Global has created an Asia Pacific regional committee KIF Asia Pacific, which plays a key role as a regional platform to strategically unify and expand national chapters and initiatives in the region.

KIF Asia Pacific is an Asia Pacific regional committee of KIF Global. The purpose of KIF Asia Pacific is to provide a regional platform for new and existing national chapters throughout Asia and the Pacific and for KIF Global to work together efficiently in improving chapter governance, communications and initiatives as well as strengthening regional partnerships in an inclusive and unified approach.
