  • The AHA Centre launched the first "ASEAN Risk Monitor and Disaster Management Review (ARMOR)"
    ~Sentinel Asia is highlighted as an essential and integral platform for the ASEAN region~

    27 March 2019 

    The ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre) launched the first edition of the “ASEAN Risk Monitor and Disaster Management Review (ARMOR)”on 20 March 2019. This ARMOR 1st edition has its subtitle “Bridging Science and Decision Making”and aims to provide science-based resources for policymakers and the disaster management community in the ASEAN region. The launch was celebrated at the inauguration ceremony attended by high-level officials of the community, including the Executive Director of the AHA Centre and Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN Community and Corporate Affairs.

    ARMOR underlines the benefit of Sentinel Asia for the ASEAN region by introducing several showcases in which Sentinel Asia was particularly useful, and notably recommends that all national disaster management organisations (NDMOs) of ASEAN Member States should be exposed to the Sentinel Asia platform. The highlight of Sentinel Asia in ARMOR is one of the best examples ever and marks a remarkable milestone in the Sentinel Asia’s history. Through collaboration between the AHA Centre and Sentinel Asia, such virtuous cycles are expected to continue.
