ICT Roadmap on Disaster Management for 2025 and Beyond
The ICT Roadmap on Disaster Management for 2025 and Beyond is a guideline to ensure the work programme or initiatives of the ICT function are aligned and relevant with the organisation plan and strategic direction. This is a multi-purpose tool that will serve as guidelines for ICT infrastructure and solutions for the AHA Centre and its network with the ASEAN Member States (AMS). This will become an important guideline not only owned by the AHA Centre, but also for all AMS to further enhance the ICT capabilities for the betterment of disaster management of ASEAN region.
The AHA Centre, in close collaboration with the ten representatives from all AMS and ASEAN Secretariat as ICT Task Force conducted the ASEAN Workshop on ICT Roadmap 2025 and Beyond on 17-18 July 2019. The first day of the workshop was designed to broaden views and insights including trends, future, and potential technology that can be implemented on disaster management from several technology experts. The second day of the workshop was intended to collect information from the ten AMS as key inputs to define initiatives and its attached components for the ICT roadmap development.
Each ICT Strategic Pillar has four ICT core values: Connected, Smarter, Influence, and Innovative. The four ICT core values are then translated into well-defined ICT Strategic Pillars and its related initiatives as follows:
Each ICT Strategic Pillar is supported by the following initiatives:
Subsequently, the ICT Strategic Pillars and its initiatives, as well as components, are mapped into a single ICT Roadmap on Disaster Management for 2025 and Beyond. The implementation of the ICT Roadmap of the AHA Centre will be marked by implementing data sharing and data management agreement initiatives and partner engagement & network platform in early 2020. By the end of 2025, the AHA Centre is expected to provide a more integrated information system for the AMS.
