Last August 27 to 31, 2018, Mr. Jeffrey Llanto, Executive Director of CVISNET Foundation, Inc. presented the importance of ‘e-Resilience’ during disasters and normal day to day situations, the Role of Information and Communications Technology for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and the 5I’s for e-Resilience Preparation in Asia-Pacific; during the United Nations - Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UN-ESCAP) Second Session of the Asia-Pacific Information Superhighway (AP-IS) Steering Committee and World Summit on the Information Society Regional Review at the United Nations Conference Center, Bangkok, Thailand.

The Master Plan for the AP-IS was developed based on studies and analyses carried out by UN-ESCAP in the region through consultations with various stakeholders, including representatives of the private sector and discussions at a technical meeting organized in 2016.   The Master Plan contains key strategic initiatives, targeted goals and a timeline in line with the four pillars of the Asia-Pacific information superhighway initiative: strengthening the regional broadband infrastructure; establishing regional Internet traffic and network management systems and policies; enhancing information and communications technology infrastructure resilience; and providing inclusive access to broadband Internet.

In addition, CVISNET also joined the Exhibition of the Committees on ICT, Science, Technology and Innovation; and Steering Committee on AP-IS. Presented was the generated awareness of the Movable & Deployable ICT Resource Unit (MDRU) Project implementated at San Remegio, Cebu, Philippines last 2015-2016 and the recent July 2018 Nepal MDRU Field Testing, Community Preparation and Technical Training at Kathmandu, Nepal, in collaboration with the ‘Educating Nepal’ Foundation and NTT.

CVISNET Conducts Nepal MDRU Field Testing and Technical Training

Last July 10-12, 2018, CVISNET visited Kathmandu of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal to conduct the Nepal MDRU Field Testing, Community Preparation and Technical Training. The visit was in cooperation the Education Nepal Foundation (EN) of Nepal and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation of Japan (NTT).

During the 2015 Nepal earthquake, it left almost 9,000 people killed and tens of thousands injured. Although after two years, Nepal has greatly reconstructed and restored several vital services. Another disaster could bring down again these infrastructure, they realized immediate restoration is very important to allow vital relief and rescue services in place.

The cooperation of ED, NTT and CVISNET brought the best available technology to enable immediate restoration of vital communication and computer services to possible affected areas in Nepal. NTT provided the MDRU technology and hardware; and CVISNET shared MDRU technical training and the Philippine experience especially in the preparation of resilient communities.

EN also provided materials to show the use of the system in delivering day to day information, such as educational materials from a database to field users operating a smart phone connected to the MDRU.

1st Asia Pacific Information Superhighway Steering Committee

Over 100 international and regional ICT experts attended the first session of the Asia-Pacific Information Superhighway (AP-IS) Steering Committee held last November 1 - 2, 2017 at Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The event addressed the broadband deficits among ESCAP member countries. It aims to enhance affordability, availability, reliability and resilience of the broadband infrastructure across the regions. The AP-IS Steering Committee meeting marked the first major step to operationalize the governance structure, develop regional and subregional implementation plans, identify challenges and opportunities and develop partnerships with international and regional organizations.
