EDITOR'S NOTE

Happy New Year, fellow ASEANers!

It is with excitement we bring you our 35th edition.
From The Column’s beginnings in 2015, our goal was to become the number one reference for disaster management in the ASEAN region.

Fast-forward to the new year of 2018 and this optimism lives on. We believe The Column shall not only become the number one reference in ASEAN, but also outside the region, as ASEAN works towards becoming a global leader, as well as a centre for excellence on disaster management.
