ADRC has been implementing web-based GLIDE-associated disaster database development project in ASEAN countries since 2008 with the financial support by Japan ASEAN Integration Fund.
The objective of this project is to facilitate all 10 ASEAN countries to develop their own national disaster databases with GLIDE numbers incorporated. In 2008 ADRC invited 3 government officials in charge of disaster information from Lao PDR, Philippines and Thailand to Kobe and gave them two month training on GLIDE.
In 2009 the training program is scheduled from 5 October to 11 December with government officials from Indonesia, Singapore and Viet Nam. ADRC held kick-off meetings in 3 countries and discussed about this year's project.
