Editors Note

Greetings fellow ASEANers!

This month’s edition of The Column covers a workshop that the AHA Centre conducted for the Familiarisation of DELSA Stockpile and THE ACT, where we provided training and simulation exercises at the WFP/UNHRD warehouse in Subang, Malaysia. It is the responsibility and function of the AHA Centre to continuously strengthen and deepen the ASEAN’s thinking of disaster management, to ensure that the region has a collective response to disasters.

Along with this concern, this issue will provide useful information towards the Impact of Disasters on Livelihoods. We also spoke with Ms. Grace Endina, DELSA Programme Assistant, for an edition of The Other Side as she shared her ambition in the disaster management field and her hopes towards the DELSA Programme.

Further on the 27th Edition of The Column, a series of meetings were conducted throughout the month. Relevant events include the 3rd PSC Meeting for the ICT System of the AHA Centre – Phase III, the 7th Meeting of the ACDM Working Group on Prevention and Mitigation, as well as the 12th Meeting of the ACDM Working Group on Preparedness and Response.

If you wish to share your suggestions, comments or anything, please do not hesitate to contact us at comm@ahacentre.org and we will do the rest.

Sincerely,

The Column Editor
