Over the past year, we’ve been working on several products and services to assist our clients to plan for contingencies impacting Taiwan.
The Taiwan Contingency Planning Workspace is a secure online workspace that’s accessible to subscribing organisations.
The Workspace contains a wealth of information that you can readily adapt for your own purposes.
The details in this workspace have utility outside of a conflict scenario. Many of the protocols can also be applied to other major incidents, such as earthquakes, typhoons and radiological incidents.
We’re regularly updating this workspace as the situation changes and with the support of participating clients.

Each of these plans are sufficiently robust to be taken and used as is. Alternatively, you can download the corresponding template and adjust the contents to fit your organisation’s specific requirements.
The domestic relocation plan includes detailed route descriptions and assessments of the cross-island roads. This information is based on route assessments conducted in March 2023.
The workspace includes the following tools and templates:
We’ve included detailed briefing templates for each stage of evacuation readiness, each stage of an air evacuation, and for shelter-in-place and domestic relocation scenarios.
We’ve included a collection of links to analyst reports on the China-Taiwan situation. These reports provide a useful reference for your own analysis.
The Workspace is accessible for a one-time fee of US $2,500. This is a fraction of the cost of what this product would cost if delivered on a consultancy basis.
If you have purchased The Contingency Planning Manual for Taiwan, then decide you want to upgrade to the Taiwan Contingency Planning Workspace, we’ll deduct the cost of the manual from the cost of the Taiwan Contingency Planning Workspace.
The Contingency Planning Manual for Taiwan provides detailed instructions for protecting your organisation’s employees and their families in Taiwan in the event of a major crisis, including hostile military action.
We initiated the development of this manual in August 2022, during Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Since then, we have continued to develop and refine the manual through research, consultation with clients, and time on the ground in Taiwan.
The manual steps you through the preparation process, guides you as to when you should make key decisions, and provides detailed operational plans for the execution of options to protect employees and their families.
The manual is designed so that it can be picked up and used with minimal modification. Alternatively, you can also use this manual as a head start for your own planning and preparation, extracting useful elements from the manual and tailoring them to your own requirements.
Available for purchase now for $128.
The information in the workspace is aligned with the information in the manual.
The Workspace includes the following:
The information in the workspace is continually being updated based on changes in the situation and input from members. The manual won’t be regularly updated and won’t necessarily contain the latest information.
If you purchase the manual, then decide you want to upgrade to the workspace, we’ll deduct the cost of the manual from the cost of the workspace.
The Taiwan Contingency Planning Workshop will help your organisation develop its own contingency plans for Taiwan.
During the workshop, we’ll orientate you to the situation and introduce you to the challenges you’ll face when planning and executing different contingency responses.
The workshop covers the following:
We’ll also share the results of our on-the-ground assessments, including details of the cross-island routes.
The standard duration of the workshop is 2 hours. We can customise the content for different client requirements.
If your organisation has specific planning requirements, we can work with you to develop tailored contingency plans.
