The result of the Meeting

The 3rd Joint Project Team Meeting (JPTM3) for establishing the Disaster Management Support System in the Asia-Pacific region was held at Le Meridien Singapore Hotel, Singapore from March 13 to 15, 2007 co-hosted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the Centre for Remote Imaging, Sensing and Processing (CRISP), National University of Singapore (NUS) in cooperation with the UN-Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) together with 84 people representing 34 organizations from 14 countries and 6 international organizations.
Based on the series of discussions made at the previous Joint Project Team Meetings and the recommendations raised at APRSAF-13 in Indonesia, December 2006, the present situation including the Sentinel-Asia System construction and the disaster operation/activation as well as examples of practical data use for disaster prevention in each country were reported, and the participants discussed a new utilization vision, how to strengthening the node activities and capacity building issues.
Prof. Bernard Tan, Chairman of CRISP, commented in his opening addresses that there are many prominent policy makers, administrators, professionals and scientists from the Asia-Pacific region gathered here with the same goal, and that is, to exchange experiences and to discuss results for the promotion and use of Sentinel Asia. The JPTM is an excellent platform for representatives to put forward and discuss plans for the successful implementation of Sentinel Asia in our representative countries. Looking ahead, he hopes this meeting will bring about an increased application of Sentinel Asia, especially in the monitoring and mitigation of natural disasters.
