The overall progress of the project has been as planned and it is foreseen that the project will clearly
contribute towards the aim of Asia IT&C Programme. In the first three months of the project, the activities were implemented as planned, i.e. the kick-off workshop, needs assessment of the four selected universities, adoption of a communication strategy for the project and implementation of a short course on GIS and remote sensing for natural hazard and risk assessment at ITC, the Netherlands. Due to the Dec 2004 Asian tsunami and to allow participation of all partners, it was decided to organize the kick-off workshop in February 2005 to coincide with the start of the short course at ITC.

In addition and as per the need expressed by the partner universities during the kick-off workshop in view of the December 2004 tsunami, a regional training course on “Tsunami wave modeling & multi-temporal satellite image processing and analysis of the impact of the December 26th
event” was organized by the ADPC in collaboration with Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Thailand, ITC the Netherlands and Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB) Indonesia.
