From 2017 – 2019 the U.S. and Malaysia will co-chair the ASEAN Defense Ministers Meeting Plus (ADMM-Plus) Humanitarian Assistance & Disaster Relief (HA/DR) Experts Working Group (EWG). As part of an objective of the ADMM-Plus HA/DR EWG agenda, the two co-chairs seek to explore available Information Management (IM) platforms in an effort to determine the best possible candidates for a collaborative information sharing system for disaster preparedness and response for Southeast Asia. The review and recommendation of an information sharing mechanism and its adoption for HADR operations will help build additional capacity for response in the ASEAN region.  While a multitude of different information sharing platforms exist and are in use throughout the Indo-Asia-Pacific, there has so far been no commonly agreed upon and utilized platform that brings together the vast and disparate amount of HADR data and information needed and used during a regional disaster response into one system. The Capstone team will help identify and evaluate the characteristics of a new information sharing platform for disaster response and preparedness. The team will also provide additional alternatives found in the research process for consideration.
